All SPHTM Graduate Student Teaching Assistants (TAs) must complete a mandatory one-hour training session to work as a TA. 

The objective of the workshop is to provide a toolkit for our TAs where ethics, academic standards, best practices, honor code, payroll, etc. are discussed. This workshop is a coordinated effort between the Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Student Affairs and it is envisioned to be a partnership with the School’s Faculty in enhancing the teaching and learning experience at the SPHTM.
