Lecture Series

The Faculty Development Lecture Series, presented throughout the year by senior faculty within the School of Medicine, covers practical topics aimed at assisting faculty in their career development.

All lectures are scheduled on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings and begin at 5:30 p.m. in SOM190P (except where noted). Lectures can also be viewed via Adobe Connect, http://emory.adobeconnect.com/fac-dev-lec-ser/. The events are aimed at faculty, but anyone who feels they might benefit from the information is welcome to attend. No registration is required for these lectures.

Many of these sessions are taped for future viewing from the Faculty Development web site. Previous lectures can be found here (Emory ID required to access).
