What we do

The Faculty Development Education Committee (FDEC) is a sub-committee of the Section of Teachers (SOT) Council. Its mandate is to develop and support faculty development for teachers involved in delivering family medicine education across the continuum. The FDEC continues the work started in 2012 by the former Working Group on Faculty Development (WGFD).
