Faculty Affairs

The Office of Faculty Affairs works with FIU, College of Medicine leadership and department chairs to support faculty at all stages of their careers—encouraging our faculty's professional development, research and scholarship.

We assist all departments with recruiting, hiring and mentoring of faculty, ensuring that we attract exceptional candidates to the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine.

We also offer guidance for faculty looking to seek promotion and awards, so they can receive the recognition their quality work deserves.


Meet the Associate Dean

Dr. Mora joined FIU in 2009, as a founding faculty member of the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. His research has focused on improving healthcare access for elderly and underrepresented patient populations, both in Florida and abroad.

Since then, he has served as the Strand Leader of our Professional Development Longitudinal Strand, Director of Geriatric Medical Education, Director of Clinical Nutrition and Professor in the Department of Translational Medicine.

Today, he strives to promote an environment of commitment, inclusion and excellence as Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs, so faculty at the College of Medicine can achieve real triumphs and contribute to the success of the university's growing scholarly community.
