Demonstration: Giving a Chalk Talk for a Faculty Position

Dates and times:

This program occurs in the fall quarter.
Registration will be linked here once the program is scheduled. To receive future announcements, join the OCPD listerv.


In this program, Dr. Seemay Chou, an Assistant Professor at UCSF, will provide participants with a brief overview of the chalk talk structure. She will then demonstrate her chalk talk as an example in front of several current UCSF faculty to simulate the types of questions asked during a chalk talk. The demonstration will be followed by short Q&A with Dr. Chou. Before coming to this program, we highly recommend that you watch Michael Rape’s seminar “The chalk talk for a faculty position."
