Abstract

We developed a faculty professional development seminar series in order to facilitate the integration of our numerous new faculty into academics. The changing nature of the healthcare system, increasing clinical and administrative responsibility, and lack of access to senior mentors can hinder junior faculty productivity and possibly increase attrition. Given that no ready-made resources existed to address these issues we established a Professional Development Committee, developed a curriculum that covers relevant topics including promotion, mentorship, conflict management and feedback, and effective presentation of scientific data, and instituted changes iteratively based upon feedback. We used surveys from successive years of this seminar series to assess effectiveness, and our data demonstrate that our Professional Development Seminar Series was valued by its participants and that individual lectures improved from year to year. While it is too early to determine whether our efforts will lead to long-term changes in promotion success or faculty retention, our initial data are promising.
