The Junior Faculty Leadership Program (JFLP) is a cohort program offered by the Office of Faculty Development (OFD) designed for School of Medicine faculty members who are at the level of Assistant Professor and at rank more than one year, but less than five years. The goal of this program is to provide junior faculty with the opportunity to build professional and leadership skills and to think proactively about their future roles as leaders in academic medicine.
The program consists of nine, two-hour sessions held from January to June virtually via Zoom. Program files and collaboration available through Microsoft Teams. We have redesigned the program from previous years to actively engage participants.

Who May Enroll?
School of Medicine Department Directors may encourage eligible junior faculty to join, but self-enrollment is also welcome. The cohort group design of this program is meant to create a learning community that enhances course activities by building collegial relationships among faculty that will enhance their experience over time.
What if I have to miss a session?
Missed sessions may be made-up in the subsequent year. Participants who complete all nine sessions will earn a certificate of completion. Many of the sessions will require team activities. Kindly only register for sessions that you are confident you will be able to attend.
