Faculty Development - Hematology, Oncology and Blood & Marrow Transplantation

The ACGME requires that all core faculty participate in at least 4 faculty development areas annually:

  • As educators
  • In quality improvement and patient safety
  • In fostering their own and their trainees well-being
  • In patient care based on their practice-based learning and improvement efforts

There are multiple ways that this requirement can be satisfied.  The fellowship program has put together a curated list of videos and other information for each of the faculty development areas.  We ask our faculty to annually review at least one item in each faculty development area.

Sleep/fatigue mitigation is crucial for optimal performance of any task—especially for medical practice.  Adequate sleep is for everybody—not just interns.  The following are interesting videos about sleep from Matthew Walker, professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley:
