Faculty Professional Development

Engaging faculty in certified/accredited faculty professional development (FPD) is a key program area for OPED. Much like CPD, programming is available to faculty (including New Brunswick) via live (face-to-face), webinar, online/distance, and one-on-one consultations with a Teaching Consultant. OPED also has online resources including vodcasts, teaching tips, and archived workshops.

Fundamentals of Clinical Research

Fundamentals of Clinical Research Modules are a series of accredited modules that will give you an overview of various aspects of clinical research. This initiative stemmed from the Faculty’s Strategic Plan (Destination Excellence) to increase research activity amongst residents in the Faculty. Fundamentals of Clinical Research Modules consists of five modules that give learners an introduction to several aspects of clinical research, which can be built upon by discipline‐specific training.
The Modules are:

  • Introduction to a Research Project
  • Research Ethics
  • Qualitative Research
  • Quantitative Research
  • Clinical Trials

The Fundamentals of Clinical Research has been a collaborative effort between the Office of Research and Graduate Studies (RGS), the Office of Professional & Educational Development (OPED), and the Clinical Research Directors Committee, Faculty of Medicine.

Explainer Videos

OPED’s Explainer Videos provide faculty with a concise overview of a topic or concept in medical education. Using animation as the medium, our Explainer Videos focus on presenting concepts in an easy-to-access and engaging format.


Medical Education Rounds

Medical Education Rounds bring together faculty members interested in innovations and research in medical education for presentations on a variety of subjects of interest. The Medical Education Rounds will be offered through existing discipline rounds and archived for viewing at your leisure.
