    Story by Petty Officer 1st Class Laura Myers 

    Naval Medical Center - Portsmouth

    Five Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) providers received the Uniformed Services University’s (USU) Advanced Training in Faculty Development certificate Nov. 15. The certificates were presented by Capt. Carolyn Rice, NMCP’s executive officer and Dr. Jessica Servey, Uniformed Services University's Associate Dean for Faculty Development.

    Congratulations to Dr. Lisa Roberts, Cmdr. Sam Gao, Air Force Col. Bryce Whisler, Lt. Cmdr. Benjamin Vipler and Lt. Cmdr. Bridget Cunningham.

    The recipients of the certificate completed an online program that taught them how to teach, train and guide new residents and health professionals in their fields of medicine. This is especially important for the medical staff at NMCP since the medical center is a teaching hospital with an expansive Graduate Medical Education program that comprises internships, residencies and fellowships.

    The USU Faculty Development program supports the mission of the Uniformed Services University to educate, train and prepare uniformed services health professionals, officers and leaders to directly support the Military Health System (MHS) by providing education and training focused in the areas of teaching, academic leadership, and scholarship and research to health profession educators throughout the MHS.

    Specifically, the program and its partners provide workshops and classes for credit in the USU Faculty Development Certificate Program for educators in the USU School of Medicine, School of Nursing,

    Postgraduate Dental College, and at more than 20 military treatment facilities across the country. The program also sponsors multi-day meetings to bring tri-service Graduate Medical Education leaders from across the country together to provide academic leadership training, and to build an academic leadership cadre to shape the future of Faculty Development in the Military Health System.
