How the Faculty Launch Program Works
During four in-person sessions, Integrated Learning Communities will be used to bring faculty together across missions and tracks. The emphasis during these sessions will be on integrated learning and task driven projects (cases).
Group Dragon Learning Circles consist of four to five faculty who are aligned by similar track. These peer working groups will work together with a senior faculty facilitator.
Dragon Learning Circles are:
- Medical Educators
- Clinical Scientists
- Clinical Leaders
- Basic Scientists
Meet the Program Participants
An important aspect of the Faculty Launch Program is the Faculty Leadership Impact Project (FLIP) that each fellow will design, plan and implement.
The FLIP is a project or initiative that expands the faculty’s leadership skills and institutional visibility through a departmental/institutional initiative that aligns with the faculty’s experience and expertise and meets a goal or need at the College of Medicine. The objective of the FLIP is to integrate the new leadership skills from didactic curriculum to their projects and expand their experience as a leader to implement key stages of the proposed projects.
Launch faculty will work individually and collaborate with their department chair and other key stakeholders on the FLIP project during the year-long program.
Faculty will be mentored by Dragon Learning Circle peers and by a senior faculty advisor on their FLIP.
