Supporting Faculty Leaders

Faculty Development


Academic medical centers need to do everything possible to support the development of leaders who have the skills to respond to the future challenges facing academic medicine. Among our highest priorities at OFDD is to offer leadership programs, networking opportunities, speaker series on cultural considerations, and skills building workshops in order to support the development of leaders who will affect change broadly.

Diversity Resources at the School of Medicine


Diversity is a core value of bet体育 Medicine. We strive for excellence and innovation, and neither can be achieved without diversity. Insights are derived from contrasting points of view, and innovation is a product of these differences.聽In both clinical and research teams, one person鈥檚 reasoning becomes the input for the next person鈥檚 reasoning. If each collaborator has the same expertise, status, and experience, then the number of new ideas鈥攖he building blocks of innovation鈥攃ould hardly surpass that of the individual working alone.


OFDD developed this free CME activity which provides education on unconscious bias in the academic medicine workplace.
