School of Medicine New Faculty Orientation

The 2017 New Faculty Orientation will be held on August 25. Registration information will be announced later this spring. 

This event is mandatory for all SOM faculty, except postdocs, hired since October 2016. However, all faculty are welcome to attend.  

As in 2016, this year's orientation format will include networking opportunities and a resource fair. The presentations will be on topics specific to the School of Medicine such as faculty promotion and development, polices, reporting external activities, research, medical education, and health and wellness. The resource fair will include other information geared toward facilitating your academic, clinical, and research pursuits. The SOM Chairs support this important event and should work with their new faculty to allow time in their schedules to attend.
