Career Development Seminar Series

The Department of Medicine is invested in the career development of all faculty and offers a Career Development Seminar Series.

This series was developed and piloted by Cary Ward, MD, as part of the Faculty Development Academy and benefited from feedback from FDA members.

The series curriculum will include popular topics in leadership skills development as well as negotiation, mentoring, and the finances of academic medical centers.

We hope you join us for this exciting Career Development Seminar Series.

Location: Sessions are virtual via Zoom or in-person, depending upon content and session objectives

Time: 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. (sessions are 60 minutes; didactics followed by branch-specific programming)
