Welcome to the Office of Professional Development
The Office of Professional Development (OPD) was established to provide programs, services, and support to physicians, basic scientists, and all others who teach our learners and lead our health system. The skill sets needed to be successful in health system settings are constantly evolving. Our goal is to lend meaningful support to those who must acquire and retain the necessary knowledge and skills to flourish in the ever-changing learning environment of academic medicine!
We strive to consistantly offer inovative and high quality professional development activities that are effective, relevant, timely, and accessable. These activities focus on major topic areas such as education, research, leadership, clinical care, and health system management. We encourage you to take a thorough look at these web pages and the Fast Track Development icon below, which describe what we do and the types of programs we offer. We also welcome a cross fertilization of ideas from colleagues doing similar things! Please feel free to contact us if we can assist you or your group in any way. Our contact email address is: Continuing_Professional_Development-OPSA-EDU@carilionclinic.org
