Faculty Affairs

Supporting leading educators

Faculty members are essential to the success of the NSU M.D. College. The Executive Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs works in collaboration with the Director of Professional Affairs and Faculty Development and department chairs to ensure that the M.D. curriculum is properly executed.  

The college's Faculty Development Program provides opportunities for learning and growth through workshops and seminars in various formats. Lead by Stefanie Carter, Ed.D., Director of Professional Affairs and Faculty Development, the goal is to collaborate with faculty so that they can provide innovative and engaging delivery of teaching to our medical students. We provide the latest trending information, resources and technology so faculty members can translate that information to their teaching and enhance each student’s medical education experience. Some of the important topics focused on include:

  • Using technology
  • Introducing active learning techniques
  • Leadership skills
  • Building interprofessional relationships among the various Health Profession Division’s programs
