Objective: Faculty development has increasingly become a focus in medical education. Many models are employed around the United States. The authors present a group model process developed to train new educators to teach our medical students. Methods: The authors met monthly with a diverse faculty over the past 4 years and interacted in a nonhierarchal manner. The authors reviewed the literature, supervised one another, and developed a participatory method of solving educational and administrative problems. Results: What emerged was a "case-based," collaborative group format to develop an educational philosophy, address challenging supervisory problems, develop tangible educational materials and "products," and promote academic careers. Conclusion: The authors propose this model for faculty development.
