The Office of Faculty Development offers and recommends several programs and courses for the faculty of the School of Medicine.
The Junior Faculty Development Course is a five-month career development course designed especially for junior faculty. Featuring a diverse faculty selected from throughout the School of Medicine, the School of Public Health and the Goizueta Business School, this course presents information necessary for academic success in a variety of formats including didactic presentations, panel discussions, group and individual exercises, and case-based problem solving. Because space is limited in this course, we encourage early nominations.
The Faculty Development Lecture Series, presented throughout the year by senior faculty within the medical center, covers practical topics aimed at assisting faculty in their career development. Sessions are held monthly in School of Medicine Building and are videotaped for later on-line viewing.
New faculty orientation is required for all new faculty hired after October 2013 and highlights topics specific to the School of Medicine such as promotion, faculty polices, and reporting external activities. It provides information geared toward facilitating faculty members’ academic, clinical and research pursuits as well. This year’s orientation will be held on Monday, October 27, 2014, from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the Winship Ballroom of Dobbs University Center (The DUC). Attendees must register in advance.
The Office of Faculty Development hosts two CV Building Workshops each academic year to assist faculty with the preparation of promotion documents. These workshops and information sessions include a didactic presentation reviewing a sample CV, a Faculty Committee for Appointments and Promotions (FCAP) panel discussion as well as small group sessions with hands-on guidance from session leaders. The next CV Building Workshop will be held in the Fall. Registration will be required. Sign up early as these events fill up quickly!
