Title: The 1st Annual Graduate Medical Education Symposium: Thanks for the Feedback and Other Critical Tools for GME Teaching Faculty and Trainees
Date: Thu, May 23rd, 2019
Time: 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Location: Lang Auditorium

Statement of Need:
Faculty development of teaching faculty is a critical component to the success of excellent Graduate Medical Education programs. Needs assessment of NYPQ’s faculty revealed needs in the following areas:
1) Performing QI activities.
2) Conducting performance evaluations and providing feedback.
3) Dealing with challenging housestaff or faculty member situations.
These core skills do not only apply to teaching faculty. They are applicable and translatable to housestaff, nursing, and many members of the inter-professional team.

Target Audience:
All health care professionals
