Welcome to the Faculty Development program. This website is designed to provide you with resources to aid in advancing up the academic ladder. You will find six relatively self-explanatory tabs which will direct to practical and useful information. Prior to completing your Individual Development Plan, it is critical for you to update your CV in Fair and browse the Department of Medicine promotion guidelines. In the Faculty Development toolkit you will find classic papers, such as how to write an academic manuscript and deciding on authorship placement. The critical links button will direct you to other campus resources for grant writing, IRB issues, etc. Finally, I will be holding office hours to meet with any interested member of the Department of Medicine faculty to review your individual IDP, discuss promotion, and explore challenges in meeting your goals. We can also be very specific and review a manuscript or grant if that would be helpful.
