CENTER FOR TEACHING, LEARNING AND INNOVATION
ULCHS launched the Faculty Apprentice program in 2019 to establish a pipeline for full-time preclinical faculty at AMD. The apprenticeship process lasts for 4 years, with 3 phases:
- Supervised Teaching Experience at AMD
- Graduate Training Abroad
- Mentorship in Transition to Faculty at AMD
The program recruits high-potential candidates for basic science teaching, and participants commit to serve as full-time faculty at ULCHS for a minimum of four years.
Seven apprentices have returned to ULCHS for their final phase of mentorship, and eight are currently enrolled in Master’s degree programs at the University of Ghana.

This training is going to help me in teaching medical students. It will increase my ability, how I relate to students, and how I deliver the lectures based on the knowledge we require. The training reinforces and solidifies what you are supposed to be practicing. It is going to help in diversity and tolerance.
