Faculty Development Short Course

Skills: Patient Communication

Program Chair: M. Daniel Wongworawat, MD, FAOA

For new program directors, associate program directors, osteopathic program directors, general faculty, and anyone interested in or involved with resident education, this course provides education to satisfy fundamental faculty development needs. The course runs on a three-year cycle, designed to follow the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) competency template of Knowledge, Skills, and Behaviors. One of these three elements will be covered annually in each short course, so that it will be comprehensive over three years. For 2023, the theme is Skills.
