Certificate Program

The Certificate Program was initiated in 2011 by the USU Faculty Development Advisory Council to coordinate Faculty Development, and provide recognition to USU Faculty who devote their time to improving their academic scholarship and skills as teachers. In 2014 the certificate program was refined to three individual tracks of study: teaching, academic leadership, and scholarship & research. At that time the certificate program expanded to include all uniformed and government employees, who are actively teaching health professionals in the Military Health System. A core team of experienced educators from USU and the Military Treatment Facilities provided over 300 class hours and awarded over 6000 credit hours in FY16. 

Each certificate requires 30 class hours designated in a specific track.  Peer feedback is recommended, but not required as part of Faculty Development. Please see these links for more information:
