FACULTY & STAFF LEARNING COMMUNITIES
A learning community is a group of individuals, sharing common goals, values, and ideas, that actively engages in learning with and from each other. Faculty learning communities aid faculty in addressing the learning needs of its students as well as the teaching and mentoring needs of their peers. Learning communities are becoming increasingly popular in the medical education community. The MSM Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) seeks to strengthen the mentoring and networking skills of MSM faculty as well as offer professional development and support.
