Jr Faculty Development Course

The School of Medicine is pleased to again offer a five-month career development course designed especially for junior faculty. Featuring a diverse faculty selected from throughout the School of Medicine, School of Public Health and Goizueta Business School, this course will present information necessary for success in an academic medical center using 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. See below for a detailed course curriculum and nomination form.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?

WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?

The course encompasses ten sessions to be held twice monthly from January 16 to May 15, 2014.

The majority of sessions will be held in the School of Medicine building. This course is approved for 30 hours of CME credit. Faculty accepted into the program are expected to attend all sessions.

WHAT IS THE COST OF THE PROGRAM?

There is a $450 charge per registrant due prior to the beginning of the course. This may be paid by the individual or department but a smartkey must be provided for funds transfer.
