Mission

The APA Faculty Development Special Interest Group
(FacDevSIG) exists to provide a professional home for pediatric medical educators interested in faculty development. Our focus is on the members' roles as faculty developers, not merely the members' own personal faculty development.



Creating Individual Faculty Development Plan



APA Educational Scholars Program

The mission of the APA Educational Scholars Program is to assist the membership in developing themselves as productive, advancing and fulfilled faculty members and to increase the quality, status and visibility of pediatric educators in academia. The program operates the Educational Scholars Program

Six-Domains of Faculty Development.

The career development needs of most academic pediatric faculty members fall into six domains. For each domain, we have provided a set of common faculty development goals. We recommend that APA members review and adapt the goal sets to create their own plans for personal career development.




Annual Report


Co-chairs:  Miriam Bar-On, University of Nevada; Natalie Burman, Naval Medical Center San Diego

SIG purpose/mission: To provide a professional home for pediatric medical educators interested in faculty development.

Current SIG goals:

  1. Expand our membership by providing an academic home for faculty developers and recruiting interested trainees and junior faculty interested in faculty development and medical education
  2. Create collaboration opportunities for scholarly work
  3. Expand our repository for key references

Annual summary:
We had an engaging Faculty Development SIG Session at PAS 2016 discussing resilience as it relates to faculty, residents and the educational environment.  Our attendance was 25, an increase from the last two PAS meetings.  Based on feedback from the attendees, we generated some ideas for the direction the SIG will be moving to include featuring hot topics as they relate to faculty development.   This has generated the content for a survey to disseminate to the broader audience to obtain everyone’s input. 

Other groups that work in your area of interest: Other SIGs we have considered collaborating with in the future include Evidence-Based Medicine and Medical Student Education.


April 2016 Newsletter Article

The Faculty Development SIG provides a professional home for medical educators interested in faculty development. Our focus is on the members' roles as faculty developers, not merely the member's own development.  We are excited to bring a new area of focus to our Faculty Development SIG membership and discuss resiliency as it relates to faculty development.

Our Faculty Development SIG Session will be on Sunday, May 1st from 12:00 to 3:00pm.

Please join us for an exciting discussion!  Our meeting format will include a keynote speaker, brief summaries of submitted workshops related to resilience, small group breakout discussions focusing on topics including learner wellness and resilience, solutions to promoting faculty well-being, and individual resilience strategies.  The goal is to provide attendees with strategies to promote resilience among learners, faculty and systems in their organizations.

There will be time to network, discuss the various scholarly presentations, and share new faculty development ideas.

We are also very pleased to announce that Dr. Natalie Burman is taking on the role of a new co-chair.  She is an Associate Program Director at the Naval Medical Center San Diego and Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences. We would also like to thank Dr. Joe Lopreiato for his longstanding support as a Co-Chair for the past 8 years.  Dr. Lopreiato will continue as an active member of this SIG.
