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 the third Tuesday of the month (except where noted) and begin at 5:30 p.m. The 2015 dates and topics will be announced in the coming weeks - stayed tuned! 

Many of these sessions are taped for future viewing from the Faculty Development web site. 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.
