The Department of Medicine created the Office of Faculty Development (OFD) to support our faculty members in their careers.

Our mission is to provide faculty with resources and guidance to 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 across the department.

The OFD hosts the department’s annual new faculty orientation, provides workshops and seminars geared toward appointments and promotions, professional development and the well-being of our faculty.

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

We are committed to providing an environment where faculty can thrive through resources that promote career satisfaction, training, mentoring, and recognition.
