OAA Updates

  • New Faculty Applications!
  • MedOnboard is a tool to assist hiring departments with the onboarding process for incoming faculty. This application serves as the formal onboarding tool for faculty and facilitates communications between incoming faculty, hiring departments, and school/hospital functional units involved in onboarding. This tool should be used for Professoriate, Clinician Educator, and Instructor populations.
  • MedLeave is a tool assisting departments and faculty with requests and approvals for sabbaticals, professional development leaves (PDL), and unpaid leaves of absence (LWOS, LOA). Along with increased transparency around where requests sit within the approval process, the application also provides a leave accrual calculator (available to leave administrators and faculty) that determines the amount of time accrued for current and future leaves.

OAA Mission

To enhance the excellence of the School of Medicine through the appointment, promotion, and retention of a distinguished and diverse faculty dedicated to the continued development of an inclusive and equitable culture.

To support the professional and personal development of all faculty from recruitment through retirement.

To maintain the integrity of school and university standards, policies, and processes in partnership with academic departments, business units, and university leadership.

We highlight practices, evidence, suggestions, and programs that facilitate effective mentoring experiences, in order to support and advance faculty success at the Stanford School of Medicine. 

Our mission is to build capacity across our institution to deliver quality coaching in medical education and position Stanford Medicine as a leader in this domain.

On behalf of the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity and the Office of Academic Affairs, we are happy to announce a new website intended for our School of Medicine faculty to access a centralized hub of go-to resources for professional development and faculty training opportunities at Stanford.
