About the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity (OFDD)

The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity (OFDD) serves to develop all faculty to their fullest potential as academic, clinical, and community leaders and to promote the recruitment and retention of diverse faculty.

Areas of Focus

OFDD programs and initiatives are designed to address the factors that have been demonstrated to influence the recruitment, retention, and advancement of faculty including enabling career and leadership professional development opportunities and building a strong and engaged faculty community.

  • A number of additional resources are also available to help diverse faculty excel in their careers at the School of Medicine


In order to meet the evolving nature of needs in academic medicine, we focus on transparency and accountability, through the ongoing collection of metrics related to faculty development and diversity, as well as continued recognition of the amazing faculty that are such an essential component of Stanford Medicine.



OFDD regularly compiles data related to faculty development and diversity at Stanford Medicine. The metrics page (SUNet ID Protected) contains some key recent reports. Historical reports may be requested.
