Registration now open!

Registration is now open for this year's Faculty Development Summit, which will be held on April 26, 2024.

The Summit will be an in-person event, held on OHSU’s Marquam Hill campus, with remote attendance options available for most portions.

Description

The Faculty Development Summit convenes faculty development stakeholders from across OHSU School of Medicine departments and institutes for a day of peer-to-peer learning, discussion, discovery and planning.

Whether meticulously designed and researched, or informal in their original formation, faculty development efforts that have a proven track record of success or offer lessons for others are worth sharing. Likewise, given the numerous individual or departmental level efforts in faculty development, there is a good chance that many unique approaches to faculty development are otherwise unknown to many who could benefit from that knowledge and experience.

For these reasons, the yearly Faculty Development Summit seeks to be a place where good ideas can be shared, productive conversations can be had, and the seeds for new faculty development initiatives can be planted.

Summit objectives

By the end of this activity, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify partners in a FD community of practice.
  • Define opportunities for cross-departmental collaboration in FD efforts.
  • List barriers and opportunities for faculty development programming.
  • Construct an inventory of highlighted faculty development efforts.
  • Generate metrics for evaluation of faculty development programs.
  • Participate in strategic planning for SoM faculty development efforts.

2024 Summit Information

This year's summit will take place on Friday, April 26, 2024.

The meeting will take place in the OHSU Auditorium on the Marquam Hill campus.

We are aiming to host a summit that will highlight different approaches to supporting faculty in the following domains of faculty development:

  • Coaching – E.g., How does your department scale availability of coaching resources for faculty?
  • Faculty Development Scholarship and Evaluation – E.g., How do you evaluate the quality of your faculty development programming and whether it meets the needs of your target faculty? How do you support faculty in pursing scholarship around faculty and professional development work?
  • Mentorship – E.g., How do you provide mentors to faculty? What types of targeted mentorship programs do you have?
  • Onboarding and Orientation – E.g., How does your department go beyond standard OHSU onboarding?
  • Promotion and Tenure – E.g., How do you make the most out of annual reviews? How does your department provide review of promotion and tenure packets and offer support in finding letter writers? How is faculty development work represented in promotional portfolios?
  • Well-being and Professional Development – E.g., How does your department help to protect faculty time to seek professional development? How do you support faculty in efforts to manage clinical burden with other obligations? How do you support faculty pursuing their interests outside of their clinical/research responsibilities?
  • Anti-racism and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – Approaches to all of the above should hopefully be designed with an anti-racism or DEI lens, and those that demonstrate such will be evaluated more favorably. Additionally, we are interested in highlighting departmental efforts to engage faculty in DEI work by, for example, increasing faculty awareness of raci

The summit is being planned as a one-day, in-person event, to be held on Marquam Hill, with remote participation options available. If necessary.

After an initial opening address on the state of faculty development in the School of Medicine, there will be a series of brief lightning round presentation sessions, each followed by a presenter panel discussion.

Each session will focus on one domain of faculty development. Members of any department/division can submit proposals to give a 5 to 10-minute pitch on either their current approach to supporting faculty in that domain or a planned approach to supporting faculty in a given domain.

We will aim to select presentations in an effort to provide a balanced mix of small and large departments, while also highlighting departments who have already begun to measure outcomes from their initiatives or who have identified a problem or gap for which they have designed and implemented a new approach and have a plan in place to measure outcomes. We also hope to highlight presenters whose departments are actively addressing diversity and inclusion and supporting equitable program design.

The primary audience for the Summit are Department Chairs and Vice-chairs for Faculty Development, Department Promotion and Tenure Committee Chairs/Champions, and other faculty or staff responsible for planning and administering faculty development initiatives and supporting faculty members’ career development.

We also welcome current or prospective faculty (residents, Ph.D. candidates, graduate students) who are interested in learning more about how faculty development is being supported across OHSU.

  • Feb. 7, 2024, 11:59 p.m.: Proposal submissions are due (extended from previous Jan. 31 deadline)
  • Feb. 29: You will be notified of the committee's decision regarding your proposal no later than this date.
  • April 14: Presenter materials due

The summit was broken up into three sessions. Each of session included a guest lecture from a national leader in faculty development, immediately followed by Q&A. OHSU participants broke out into small facilitated workshop groups to discuss what they have learned and how such lessons could be applied to their own faculty development efforts.

Registration is open for the 2022 Faculty Development Summit

The 2022 summit was a one-day, in-person event, held in the OHSU Auditorium (Old Library) on Marquam Hill, with remote participation options available.

After an initial opening address on the state of faculty development in the School of Medicine, there was a series of lightning round presentation sessions, immediately followed by panel Q&A and discussions.

Each session focused on one domain of faculty development. Presenters gave a 10-minute pitch on either their current approach to supporting faculty in that domain or a planned approach to supporting faculty in a given domain. Each session featured up to five presentations.

The aim was to select presentations in an effort to provide a balanced mix of small and large departments, while also highlighting departments who have already begun to measure outcomes from their initiatives or who have identified a problem or gap for which they have designed and implemented a new approach and have a plan in place to measure outcomes. We also hoped to highlight presenters whose departments are actively addressing diversity and inclusion and supporting equitable program design.
