Office of Faculty Development and Diversity

2013 Faculty Fellows Information and Nomination Form


The Office of Diversity and Leadership has announced the launch of the 2013-2014 School of Medicine Faculty Fellows Program. Now commencing its seventh year, the program will focus on a select group of Assistant and Associate Professors as Faculty Fellows for the 2013-2014 academic year. The purpose of the Faculty Fellows program is to identify and develop a diverse group of faculty with the potential to become our future leaders.

During the yearlong program, Fellows attend monthly dinner meetings with key University leaders including President John Hennessey, Provost John Etchemendy and Dean Lloyd B. Minor.  Each speaker shares their “Leadership Journey” and engages fellows in a discussion about their leadership philosophy, strategy and style. In addition, Fellows participate in small monthly mentoring groups led by a senior Professor; and in a structured Career Development Planning process with their division chiefs or department chairs to craft a specific, career development action plan which the fellow will implement over the subsequent year.

If you are interested in being nominated for this opportunity, ask your Department Chair or Chief to nominate you. Criteria to apply:
·                    Assistant or Associate professors (no less than 2 years in rank at Assistant and no more than 3 years in rank at Associate)
