**Sent on behalf of Kathy Griendling, PhD, Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Professional Development**


The School of Medicine is pleased to again offer a five-month career development course designed for junior faculty. Featuring a diverse faculty selected from across the School of Medicine, Rollins School of Public Health, and Goizueta Business School, this course will present information necessary for success in an academic medical center using a variety of formats including didactic presentations, panel discussions, group and individual exercises, and case-based problem solving. Because space is limited in this course, we encourage early nominations. Please refer to the website for a detailed course curriculum.

Who is eligible to apply?
All instructors and assistant professors in the School of Medicine.

What is the time commitment?
The course encompasses ten sessions to be held twice monthly from January 14 to May 19, 2016. Sessions will meet on Thursday evenings from 5:30-8:30 p.m. (with the exception of January 14, which will meet until 9 p.m.) and will include dinner. The majority of sessions will be held in the School of Medicine building. This course is approved for 27.5 hours of CME credit. Faculty accepted into the program are expected to attend all sessions.

What is the cost of the program?
There is a $450 charge per registrant due prior to the beginning of the course. This can be paid by the individual or the department.

How to apply:
All interested candidates must submit a nomination form and CV. There is no limit to the number of nominations from a department, but final selections will made to ensure diverse representation across the School of Medicine and will be limited to 35-40 participants.

Nominations can be made directly by applicants or by departmental chairs. Applications must include a brief statement from candidates as to how the course will assist them in their careers.
