The Teaching Development and Coaching Program contains several stages. Participant selection mechanisms include teaching evaluations, referral (Safety Net, COAP Advisory Letter, Course Director, etc.), self identity, and workplace assessment. Evaluation methods such as faculty guided self evaluation and EO evaluation lead to the identification of a teaching issue. These issues can be of three types: (1) Issues of safety or wellbeing are addressed by the chair or designee who creates and oversees a development plan via the EAP or Professionalism Program at Penn Medicine. The issue is reevaluated and development plan updated. With (2) issues of instructional methods and (3) issues of communication style, etc., the EO creates and oversees a development plan, followed by a remediation and coaching program. Re-evaluation is either faculty guided or performed by the EO, after which the development plan is updated.  With any type of issue, the updated development plan may result in any of the following actions: EAP, the Professionalism Program at Penn Medicine, and/or EO Applies Toolbox Resources, followed by re-evaluation again, as needed. The updated development plan may also result in continuing professional development (as usual) such as FAPD Advance Workshops+, the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics, the Office of Organization Effectiveness, Penn Medicine Academy, and PSOM CME."
