Faculty development for career development includes a range of activities and resources, including mentoring, career planning, and understanding the processes for recognition and promotion within the organizations and institutions in which faculty work. Faculty wellness is a component of career development with an overall aim of career success and fulfillment.


Workshops support health professionals in their multiple roles as teachers, educators, academic leaders, scholars, and advocates. Anyone involved in health professions education is eligible to register.

Workshops are free for faculty in the Faculty of Medicine (FoM), University of Toronto (UofT) and for employees of Unity Health Toronto. If you are not a faculty member in the FoM, UofT or a Unity Health Toronto employee, but are active in health professions, a fee of $50 will apply.

Registration is required.
