The Mid-Career Development Workshop

The Mid-Career Development Workshop is a half-day and in-person professional development workshop designed for mid-level faculty. This workshop provides attendees with the knowledge and skills to pursue promotion to full professor. During the workshop, participants will learn about SMHS guidelines for promotion, listen to a panel presentation by senior faculty from clinical, basic, and health science departments who have served on the APT committee or successfully mentored faculty in their promotions, and hear from a Department Chair on advocating for mid-career faculty. 

Faculty will learn what it takes to achieve “excellence”, to demonstrate a “sustained record of achievement” and how to develop the “national recognition” that promotion to full professor requires. Finally, attendees will have dedicated time during the workshop to develop their own plan for promotion.

By the end of this session faculty will be able to:

  • Describe the requirements for promotion to Professor in both tenure and non-tenure tracks
  • Identify strategies to raise their professional achievements to the level of professor
  • Formulate a personal action plan for promotion
