Workshops & Trainings

The Office of Faculty Affairs offers workshops and training as part of our Faculty Development programming. The workshops and training that OFA supports are listed below:

Path to Publication

The Path to Publication program supports Medical School faculty who have minimal to moderate experience in writing for peer-reviewed journals. This hybrid workshop consists of an online self-paced learning module followed by an interactive group session.

Implicit Bias Training

The Medical School has a deep commitment to embracing and nurturing an environment of diversity, inclusiveness, equal opportunity and respect for the similarities and differences in our community. Reflecting this dedication, OFA offers training in implicit bias. This workshop introduces the breadth of implicit bias research, helping participants recognize shortcuts that are the result of unconscious or unexamined bias. It assists faculty in their roles during search processes, search committees, promotion and tenure committees, or other activities. Participants learn about best practices and resources for addressing implicit bias in the context of search and selection processes.

Bystander Training

The Office of Faculty Affairs has collaborated with The Aurora Center for Advocacy & Education to host Bystander Training sessions. Organizational culture is one of the greatest predictors of the occurrence of sexual violence and harassment. Sexual violence and harassment are pervasive and deeply impactful forms of harm. This workshop will focus on providing the skills to respond to, and intervene in situations where harm is occurring, with the goal of creating an organizational culture that does not accept or condone any instance of sexual violence and harassment.

History of Racism in Medicine

Through a series of short lectures via Canvas, you’ll learn about the history of structural racism in the US healthcare system. We will acknowledge the myriad ways in which this country's long and violent history of racial oppression and injustice continues to impact the lives and health of Black Americans, Indigenous people, and other people of color. This self-paced faculty development curriculum is composed of six video modules, discussion questions, as well as slides, articles, and a TED talk you can view at your own convenience.

Remote Faculty Development Offerings

The Office of Faculty Affairs has developed new remote faculty development opportunities during this period of remote working. For registration and more information, please visit our webpage.

Coaching may help. Associate Dean Termuhlen in OFA is offering open hours each week for faculty members for coaching designed to tackle specific concerns.
