Faculty Development Program

Dr. Bonnie Desselle, Pediatrics Residency Program Director, conducts  a series of workshops to improve faculty and fellows’ teaching skills and encourage active learning during didactic sessions with residents, such as daily noon conferences.  This faculty development program has been approved by the LSUHSC- NO Institutional Review Board.  Dr. Desselle meets with faculty and fellows from each division within the department and conducts separate workshops tailored for each subspecialty, emphasizing interactive teaching techniques to create a better learning environment.

In addition, Dr. Desselle has produced a series of precisely targeted articles covering enhanced teaching and mentoring techniques published in the Pediatrics Departmental Newsletter under a special Faculty Development Section.
