The Program for Faculty Development (PFD), in its 29th year, is dedicated to promoting teaching and learning in the Faculty of Health Sciences, McMaster University while offering faculty, staff, residents and external visitors various interdisciplinary programs and workshops aimed at improving teaching effectiveness.

The PFD endeavours to be a welcoming place for individuals who value teaching and learning, and all are encouraged to drop in any time to learn about our offerings. Watch for upcoming initiatives as we continue to grow.

On behalf of our PFD team, I invite you to take a few moments to explore our website and have an enjoyable visit.
