Medical teachers trained in conventional educational systems need faculty development to prepare them to function effectively in a competency-based medical education (CBME) system. Faculty development can provide knowledge about CBME, training in new teaching techniques in different domains of medical practice, and new strategies for providing the authentic and regular assessment that is an essential aspect of CBME. A systems-wide approach as well as efforts to provide training in CBME to individual teachers in both the undergraduate and postgraduate systems will be important. The wide implementation of CBME will be challenging and slow, and will meet with resistance, but various strategies can be used address these challenges. Faculty development is fundamental to the effectiveness of those strategies.
