Faculty Development (FD) has become an essential element in health professional education (HPE). For the purpose of this study, FD is defined as any formal learning activities intended to support teachers in HPE in performing their academic roles (e.g. workshops, courses). However, the literature on teachers' perceptions and attitudes towards FD is scarce. This is the first study to derive a numerical tool to measure the teachers’ perception and attitudes towards FD in health professional education in a multi-institutional, international context.
In this survey, you will answer questions relating to your attitudes and perceptions towards FD. It will take 15 minutes.
Your participation is voluntary. No personal identifiers will be collected in the study. There is no harm resulting from filling out this survey, other than the time spent.
There is no tangible benefit in participating in the study, but we thank you for supporting research in health professional education!
The PAFDI study has been granted an exemption from the Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board, McMaster University.
There are 13 questions in this survey.
