“STFM on the Road provided a means for many of our preceptors to get training they might not have been able to receive. Having the training come to us was economical and well worth the investment. In addition, the STFM staff coordinating the program met all of our planning needs, and our STFM faculty presenter, Dr Alison Dobbie, was able to tailor the day’s activities and topics to interests of a very diverse group that included doctors from various specialties, pharmacists, and nurses. I would recommend this to any organization for an efficient and economical way to provide professional development opportunities to their faculty!”—Lisa Browning, Riverstone Health
“Dr Dobbie is a master teacher. Her audience was composed of 15 faculty members with a wide range of experience and she was able to meet the learning needs of all. Her recommendations were practical; her examples resonated; and her enthusiasm was contagious!
Our chief resident was especially glad to have participated. He told me that he really appreciated how she didn't pull punches. Yet her message was also quite palatable.
It was money well spent!”—Linda French, MD, professor and chair, Department of Family Medicine, University of Toledo
“The STFM workshop provided a strong sense of direction, putting us 'On the road to Success,' involving our whole department and re-energizing us individually to pursue our scholarly goals and dreams.Both speakers were awesome and very down to earth, providing the basic tools and nuts and bolts for our academic survival and success.”—O Noriega MD, residency program director, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
“STFM on the Road was just what we needed for our ‘focus on teaching’ faculty retreat.Dr Dobbie and Dr Tysinger worked diligently with us to customize our retreat to meet our needs. They brought energy and expertise to the sessions, while integrating so beautifully the experiences and knowledge of our own faculty. And we all had fun in the process! Our faculty were a diversity of new and established and each one came away with new ideas and reinvigorated enthusiasm for teaching.
Out of the retreat, we have restructured parts of both our student and residency curricula, and even developed a research project on teaching effectiveness.Following the retreat, both Drs Dobbins and Tysinger kept in touch and offered resources, if needed. It could not have been a better use of our time and resources!”—Diane Beebe, MD, professor and chair, Department of Family Medicine, University of Mississippi
“STFM on the Road was a great way to bring 26 of our local family physician teaching colleagues into the same room at the same time, working toward standardizing and improving our teaching skills. I would recommend it to any family medicine residency as a boost for their faculty development."—Gregory Gochnour, MD, residency program director, McKay-Dee Family Residency Program
“The STFM on the Road workshop for our community-based family medicine faculty was a highly effective, highly efficient, and highly enjoyable way to do faculty training while minimizing the loss of clinical productivity that we would have otherwise experienced had we sent faculty elsewhere. This is an innovative way to have faculty development opportunities that are convenient, affordable, and well-organized.—Mario Pacheco, MD, Director, Northern NM Family Medicine Residency, CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center
