Resources for Faculty

Faculty at the Medical University of South Carolina are brilliant content experts. The University hires the finest clinicians and researchers to teach the next generation of scholars and practitioners; however, sometimes we may not have academic backgrounds in teaching. And even those of us who are educated to teach adults may need additional pedagogical information. Sometimes we might just want to talk to someone about issues related to teaching.

The CAE promotes itself as allies for faculty, and we will do all we can to help you succeed in the classroom, the lab, or the clinic.

We are available to be your first audience for any presentation you might be asked to make—local, regional, or national. We also can help you create a poster that will wow them.
