New Beginnings Coaching

For Senior Faculty


As part of the New Beginnings program, OAA is offering 1:1 coaching to interested senior faculty on the transition to retirement. Traditional retirement planning typically focuses on financial issues but does not address the social and emotional aspects of retirement. The New Beginnings Coaching, led by our very own School of Medicine faculty, now provides this type of support and guidance for any School of Medicine faculty member considering retirement. Any faculty member is eligible to receive up to 5 coaching sessions at no cost.

There are two ways to initiate a coaching request.  We recommend you read the coach bios below and identify a coach of interest to you. Feel free to contact the coach directly for a “chemistry” call. If you decide to proceed with the coaching, you will need to complete a coaching agreement online.  Alternatively,  you may contact Rania Sanford, the internal faculty coach at the School of Medicine, for an appointment. Rania will find out more about your goals and needs and will suggest appropriate next steps.
