The Office of Faculty Development seeks to attract, foster and retain the next generation of clinical, translational and basic science leaders, while supporting the career advancement of current faculty members. In today’s academic medical centers, faculty are the greatest resource for excellence in clinical care, advancement of biomedical discoveries, and teaching the next generation.
This Office is dedicated to assisting all faculty in achieving academic success at every stage of their careers, with targeted activities focusing upon the specific needs of junior, mid-career and senior faculty.
We have all kinds of faculty who do all kinds of work within our academic medical community. We seek to have a better understanding of the faculty needs in 2017 at Weill Cornell Medicine.
Faculty and Professional Development can be defined as any and all effort to help individuals best perform their roles as faculty and as professionals.
A recent inventory of what is currently being offered centrally revealed over 50 different offerings aimed at early career faculty, mid-level career faculty, and senior faculty across the three missions of research, education/teaching, and clinical service.
