“STFM on the Road provided a means for many of our preceptors to get training they might not have been able to receive. Having the training come to us was economical and well worth the investment. In addition, the STFM staff coordinating the program met all of our planning needs, and our STFM faculty presenter, Dr Alison Dobbie, was able to tailor the day’s activities and topics to interests of a very diverse group that included doctors from various specialties, pharmacists, and nurses. I would recommend this to any organization for an efficient and economical way to provide professional development opportunities to their faculty!”—Lisa Browning, Riverstone Health
“Dr Dobbie is a master teacher. Her audience was composed of 15 faculty members with a wide range of experience and she was able to meet the learning needs of all. Her recommendations were practical; her examples resonated; and her enthusiasm was contagious!
Our chief resident was especially glad to have participated. He told me that he really appreciated how she didn't pull punches. Yet her message was also quite palatable.
It was money well spent!”—Linda French, MD, professor and chair, Department of Family Medicine, University of Toledo
“The STFM workshop provided a strong sense of direction, putting us 'On the road to Success,' involving our whole department and re-energizing us individually to pursue our scholarly goals and dreams.Both speakers were awesome and very down to earth, providing the basic tools and nuts and bolts for our academic survival and success.”—O Noriega MD, residency program director, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
