Faculty of UTGSM have a track record of producing solid clinicians upon graduation from their programs.  We are now introducing a formal, campus-wide, comprehensive, coordinated curriculum for continued improvement of faculty academic skills.  The course series will consist of a monthly, two hour CME course.
