By J.R. Morrissy, J.T. Biehn, I.R. McWhinney and M.J. Bass

Abstract

The Department of Family Medicine at the University of Western Ontario has been in existence for ten years. During this time there has developed a wealth of experience in helping members of the Department, both fulltime and part-time, to improve their skills as family practice teachers. The current faculty development program has dealt with the transition period from practitioner to teacher, the interaction of teacher and student and current concepts of learning theory. It is now working on the development of scholarship within the department. An outline of the master of clinical science program is given. We hope this program will facilitate the successful development of the next generation of family medicine teachers
