Faculty development programs (FDPs) occupy an important role in the effective delivery of the medical curriculum to the medical students. Owing to the specific recommendation by the regulatory body, all the medical colleges are conducting a specific number of mandatory FDPs. However, like any other program, the mere organization of any FDP does not serve the purpose, unless the quality assurance of such programs is ensured and the outcomes of the same are evaluated as a follow-up activity. The quality assurance of the FDP can be assessed via either the internal or external quality assurance methods. In conclusion, the FDPs play a crucial role in improving the competence level of the faculty members. However, in order to ensure that we accomplish the set targets, it is extremely essential to maintain the quality of the organized FDPs and follow it up in the subsequent period.
