Faculty Development Bytes

Faculty Development Bytes are, as the name implies, chunks of information of relevance to faculty. The bytes vary in length from 15-30 minutes.  Each byte is accompanied by a page describing the presenter, listing learning objectives, and resources associated with the topic of the byte.  CME credit is available for each byte.

The table below lists the topic of the byte and the presenter.  Click on highlighted text in the table below or the topic listed on the left of this page to access each byte.

We will be regularly updating this page as more offerings become available.  

We welcome suggestions for additional bytes
