The purpose of the School of Medicine Staff Development Council is three-fold:
- Facilitate communication across departments in regard to staff development issues, ideas, and resources;
- Facilitate communication from the departments to the Dean's office and from the Dean's office to departments; and
- Develop school-wide initiatives related to staff development such as School of Medicine Orientation, school-level awards and recognition program, identification of school specific training needs, etc.
This purpose may be modified over time as additional needs are identified. Membership on the Council consists of representatives from the 30 departments in the School of Medicine. Members serve 2 year terms. (One half of the initial membership will serve a 1 year term.)
