A systematic review of faculty development initiatives designed to improve teaching effectiveness in medical education: BEME Guide 8

Although many reports describe a variety of faculty development interventions, there is a paucity of research demonstrating their effectiveness. The objective of this review was to synthesize the existing evidence that addresses the following question: “What are the eff ects of faculty development interventions on the knowledge, attitudes and skills of teachers in medical education, and on the institutions in which they work?”
