Message from the Associate Dean for Faculty Promotions & Career Development
Our people are our greatest resource. Thus, among the core missions of the School of Medicine is to attract, develop, advance and support a diverse and talented workforce. My goal is to develop a range of programs that support career development across all disciplines, academic tracks, and career stages so that our faculty have every opportunity to reach their full potential here at WashU. When you succeed, patients’ lives are improved, science is advanced, and learners are prepared to lead us into the future. Through my office, and the departments’ faculty development offices, we aim to build on past success, enhance access to key programs, and provide innovative new approaches to professional development.
Getting this right will take time. I ask for your patience as we reimagine and relaunch career development offerings. I am deeply committed to partnering with you on this journey. If you have ideas for new programs, or know of exemplary offerings elsewhere, please reach out to me and to your department’s faculty development office!
