S3 : Cultivation of future medical educators: how to achieve?
   Running an MD program needs a lot of staffs with proper knowledge and attitudes in education. However, a doctor often starts their teaching career without proper training in education. One important mission of a medical school is to provide proper training for their staffs until they develop adequate knowledge and skills in teaching, producing instructional media, managing a curriculum, assessment and evaluation of learners. Such training of medical teachers and supporting staffs would lead to effective learning of medical students and residents. However, providing medical education training in a medical school had been met with many challenges. In this session, speakers who have experience in faculty development program will share their viewpoints regarding proper ways in setting up a faculty development program in a medical school in order to produce a new generation of medical educators who are ready to serve the needs of medical schools today and in the future.
