Midcareer and Senior Faculty Development

As our department has grown, our faculty development needs have evolved, necessitating a two-tiered faculty development program. We are pleased to announce a series of leadership training workshops offered biannually that are focused on the needs for DEM midcareer/senior faculty. The topics are based on faculty feedback.

In addition, we have introduced executive coaching as an additional resource for our midcareer/senior faculty to better prepare them for periods of transition, new roles or to re-engage in their work. For this, we have compiled a list of executive coaches for the DEM as a resource. This list is curated based on reviews of experience with working with academic physicians and is pooled from recommendations from peers in the department, as well as local experts.

Executive coaching can be a boost to both your performance and job satisfaction. However, it is not for everyone and needs one to be in the right frame of mind and requires commitment of your time to be useful. For questions regarding accessing these coaches, please reach out to Dr. Safdar.
