Background: Traditionally, faculty development material is static and text based. Infographics are synoptic communication tools that use visual images such as a chart, diagram or picture to represent information or data. Studies show that: People remember 10% of what they hear, 20% of what they read and 80% of what they see and do. By pairing concepts with visuals, one is more likely to store this information into their long-term memory and to transmit the message more quickly. Community faculty have limited time to do faculty development.
Objectives: Form a statewide partnership among family medicine departments to development faculty development materials. Create and disseminate time efficient Faculty Development materials using infographic format.
Conclusions: The WISE FM Collaboration successfully developed innovative and dynamic faculty development material in a time efficient manner. Preceptors positively evaluated infographics and reporting intent to use strategies in teaching. Dissemination initiatives underway.
