Junior Faculty Leadership Program

 The Program

The Junior Faculty Leadership Program (JFLP) is a voluntary cohort program offered by the Office of Faculty Development (OFD) designed for School of Medicine faculty members who are at the level of Instructor or Assistant Professor and with less than 4 years at rank. 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 8 two and a half hour sessions held from January to June on the East Baltimore campus. We have redesigned the program from previous years to actively engage participants. 

We are currently accepting applications for the 2019 cohort through October 19th


Statement of Interest | Program Commitment Form


Who May Apply?

School of Medicine Department Directors may nominate or encourage people to apply, but a self-nomination 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?

Many of the sessions will require team activities. Please do not apply to the program unless you are confident that your schedule will allow you to attend all the sessions. When you must miss a session due to illness or an emergency, you may have the opportunity to audit the session with a future cohort.
