The Department of Medicine is committed to the success of our faculty and trainees.
This directory of resources, support offerings, tools and other links sponsored by the Department of Medicine Chair's Office through the Vice Chair for Faculty Development and Diversity supports Department of Medicine faculty and trainees in their career, professional and personal development.
Taking advantage of these (faculty development) programs has really helped me gain collaborations, diversified my research, and most importantly allowed other eyes on my research.
