Mid-Career Faculty in Academic Medicine (MCFAM)

The mid-career faculty in academic medicine (MCFAM) program is a new faculty interest group with quarterly faculty development activities including mentoring, networking, and workshops and seminars.

Mid-career faculty often experience increased work demands, pressure to provide support to early faculty, and are relied on to provide service to the Medical School. Mid-career faculty have reported more stress and reduced job satisfaction. Among mid-career faculty, individuals who identify as women and underrepresented faculty experience more challenges in academic medicine.

Retention and promotion is critical to the success of the Medical School and this program is aimed at supporting faculty in their career development, building a community of support, and improving our overall retention of mid-career faculty.
