    In health professions, those who teach and supervise students are typically content experts in a clinical, biomedical, basic science, public health or other domain. Many are not formally trained as educators and can feel ill–equipped and underprepared in their teaching role. By supporting educators in the health professions to develop their repertoire educational and scholarly skill will not only benefit them and their students but will inevitably inform the quality improvement of our educational offerings. In this presentation, we outline a capacity building project that seeks to identify educational and scholarly needs and priorities of educators in CMPH and build educational capacity across the College footprint. We will discuss the project’s aims, aspirations and approach, and present a case study to highlight the possibilities for developing educational capacity within a teaching program. We conclude by offering some take home messages around developing educational partnerships and taking a more deliberate and strategic approach to building the capacity of educators in the health professions.
