There are over 430 clinical faculty members in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine (CU SOM). Our clinical faculty are physicians, physician assistants, nurses, psychologists, and other allied health professionals throughout Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana and are generally volunteer faculty who teach residents, medical students, physician assistants, and nursing students in the hospital, in their private offices, and in outpatient settings.
CU SOM has created an Office of Community Based-Medical Education (OCBME) to support, strengthen, and celebrate the work of volunteer clinical faculty. OCBME has developed a very useful website that is a great resource for clinical faculty in their teaching endeavors. It includes videos of teaching points, online teaching modules, career development workshops and more.
Crowd Wisdom is a CU SOM online faculty development tool for fulltime and volunteer faculty who are looking to improve their academic skills. Several online modules are available on Crowd Wisdom providing foundational knowledge in core teaching principles. Once you are redirected, you can create your own account and password. It takes two minutes to complete the two-step process.
