Each spring, the Office for Faculty Affairs offers a three-day course designed for HMS and HSDM instructors, assistant professors, and associate professors who have responsibility for a research grant, laboratory, educational course, or clinical program. The goal of the course is to build on participants’ knowledge base and skills to enhance their professional development as administrative leaders in academic medicine. The curriculum focuses on human resource management, negotiation, finance, self assessment, communications, and personal career development. A sample course agenda is available here. Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.
