The Mission of the Society of Teaching Scholars (STS) at the University of Florida College of Medicine is to honor and foster teaching excellence and educational scholarship. Each year the STS invites about three new members to join the Society and help support this mission.
Teaching scholars are asked to mentor junior faculty on teaching improvement and serve in an advisory capacity to the Faculty Development Committee and COMEC (College of Medicine Education Center). The Society also sponsors the annual “Medical Education Week” that features lectures and workshops on relevant educational topics. Current members of the Society are responsible for selecting new members based on nominations and a teaching portfolio.
Congratulations, Dr. Giordano!
