The MCG Office for Faculty Success operates on the premise that faculty will have the greatest satisfaction and returns on their careers when they feel ownership over them. Having ownership requires planning, assessment of self and the work environment, and ongoing skills development to maximize opportunities that will present over a career in academic medicine.

Faculty career development needs can change at different career points. Revisiting faculty career goals over time helps to ensure that careers don’t just happen but are actively created.

A consultation with the MCG Office for Faculty Success can help focus your own career development or the career development of MCG Faculty that you mentor or supervise.

You are the entrepreneur of your career, even if you are employed by others.
