About

The Department of Medicine created the Office of Faculty Development (OFD) to support its faculty members in their careers. The office’s mission is to provide faculty with resources and guidance that will foster professional and personal growth and development in clinical care, education, research, and leadership.

A key goal is to support university and department initiatives to recruit and retain a diverse faculty.

The OFD hosts the department’s new faculty orientation and provides workshops and seminars to promote career development in clinical care, education, research, and leadership.

The office is led by Milan Anadkat, MD, Professor of Medicine.

Our faculty is our greatest resource, and it is important to continue to nurture and cultivate faculty at all levels. –Victoria Fraser, MD, the Adolphus Busch Professor of Medicine and chair of the Department of Medicine 

Partners

In support of our faculty, we partner closely with many offices across the department, medical school and university.
