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 of each month from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. in SOM 153A (except where noted). The workshops are aimed at faculty, but anyone who feels they may benefit from the information is welcome to attend. 

We kindly request RSVPs for these lectures. Remote participation will also be available via Zoom; details are forthcoming.

Many of these sessions are taped for future viewing. Previous lectures can be found here (Emory ID required to access).
