The UCSF Teaching Scholars Program develops educational leaders and scholars through an intensive seminar series, mentored projects, a network of educational colleagues and collaborative learning. The program models the goals that it has for the learners, including providing a research base for the content and exemplifying various teaching strategies selected to match the content. Participants complete the program with a scholarly product that is submitted for peer review.
