Faculty Development Program

faculty development program

The Faculty Development Program will take place twice weekly on Wednesdays and repeated on Thursdays, with one session each day from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm. Both sessions will occur in the Nagle Auditorium. Lunch will be provided.

The sessions will also be simultaneously broadcast by Zoom. The goal in offering the same topic over two days is to maximize the opportunity for faculty to attend. One session will also be recorded and archived in NYU iLearn as a resource for NYU Dentistry faculty.

Upon completing the session evaluation, participants will receive one credit hour of Continuing Dental Education (CDE) for each FDP session in which they participate.

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, NYU Dentistry will provide FDP programming in five areas:

  • Teaching, Learning, Assessment, and Curriculum (TC)
  • Research, Scholarship, and Career Advancement (RS)
  • Leadership and Management (LM)
  • Maximizing Technology (MT)
  • Clinical Dentistry and Systemic Health (CD)

The schedule for this spring begins with the following FDP sessions:
