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. Confirmed room locations are provided; however, the room locations for the 2014 dates cannot be confirmed yet but will be provided in future notices closer to the date of the lecture.

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.
