As the MCG Office for Faculty Success, we serve faculty and the academic/clinical
departments in which they reside.
Our mission is to oversee, promote, and build an intentional and integrated approach
to supporting faculty needs across career stages, appointment types, and faculty roles,
ensuring that all faculty have access and opportunity in their pursuit of excellence
Mentoring is a critical piece for the success of faculty in academic medicine. According
to the Association of American Medical Colleges, mentoring is associated with job
satisfaction, productivity, retention, and increased sense of "fit" with one's institution.
We operate on the premise that faculty will have the greatest satisfaction and returns
on their careers when they feel ownership over them.
Diverse, capable, engaged faculty are our most valuable resource in academic medicine.
|Our consultations services can benefit faculty from career entry through retirement.
We assist people in thinking through personal career trajectories as well as those
in leadership roles seeking to enrich faculty development within their departments.
