Department of Family Medicine
The overall purpose of the Faculty Development Program in the Department of Family Medicine is to encourage excellence in practice, teaching and research at the Medical University of South Carolina, and to do so in ways that respond to individual faculty needs, department priorities, and overall MUSC strategic goals. The Faculty Development Program will provide assistance to each faculty member to reach his/her individual academic goals, through the use of seminars and individual mentoring. Topics for the coming year will focus on teaching skills, research, and professional development.
Our overall mission is to improve the health of South Carolinians and promote excellence in training of family physicians by developing and improving the skills of the faculty. This program will be led by Alexander W. Chessman, M.D.
