Faculty Education & Development Talks

Welcome to FED Talks.

The Faculty Education & Development Talks are 5-8 minute video summary presentations of the hour-long talks given during the Faculty Development Series. It is our hope that putting these FED talks on-line will make them readily accessible to you whenever and wherever you want to view them. While it is our hope that you attend our CME approved programs we know that this might not always be possible. So, if you can't join your colleagues during the formal presentations, please take advantage of this on-line resource.
