Three from the UCSF School of Nursing, including: Clinical Professor Pamela Bellefeuille, RN, MN, CNS; Clinical Professor Annette Carley, RN, DNP, NP; and Clinical Teaching Assistant Peterson Pierre, RN, MS; were honored for completion of various tracks in the Teach for UCSF Certificate Program (program).

The program defines educational paths for individuals to develop focused teaching skills. Each of the three finished unique program tracks—Bellefeuille the Simulation Teaching, Carley the General Teaching, and Pierre the Clinical Teaching. The program is open to current and future faculty at UCSF and at affiliated institutions (i.e., residents, fellows, volunteer faculty). Participants complete specific sets of UCSF Educational Skills Workshops. Credit toward the certificate is given after demonstration of competence through assessments that are completed during each workshop.

Requirements for the tracks are as follows:

  • General Teaching 2-3 workshops per year to complete certificate in 2-4 years (4-16 hours per year)
  • Clinical Teaching 2-3 workshops per year to complete certificate in 2-4 years (4-16 hours per year)
  • Simulation Teaching 2-3 workshops per year to complete certificate in 2-4 years (4-16 hours per year)

In the School of Nursing, the following faculty have completed the General Teaching track: Angel Chen, RN, MSN, PNP; Rosalind De Lisser, MS, RN, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC; DorAnne Donesky, RN, PhD, NP; and Suzan Stringari-Murray, RN, MS, ANP. The Center for Faculty Educators offers intensive days of workshops to accelerate progress toward completion of these certificates, or complete a mini-certificate in Simulations Teaching in one day.

Congratulations to our dedicated faculty.
