QUEST Club Workshop Series

How to Pave the Way for Others: Sponsorship

As the world of health professions education moves towards outcomes-based (or competency-based) education, we believe that faculty development in these fields should also change. QUEST is an inquiry-based program that focuses on bringing you customizable modules where you can learn new knowledge, skills, and attitudes, and bring them to your work context.

We would like to thank Dr. Smita Halder for her assistance in developing this module.
