HWCOM is developing a multipronged faculty support structure that will aid in faculty networking, satisfaction, and retention. The support structure incorporates the Office of Women in Medicine and Science Career Development Workshops for Everyone workshops and Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
The WIMS Career Development Workshops for Everyone is a series of workshops hosted with the purpose of educating ALL faculty and staff about career advancement at HWCOM/FIU.
The Office of the Associate Dean for Women in Medicine and Science surveys the faculty once a year to determine areas where professional development is needed. Results from that survey are used to create the Office of Women in Medicine and Science Workshop Series, offered throughout the year, to address reported development needs.
HWCOM administers annual faculty and staff evaluations that encompass a self-evaluation and review of clinical/basic science/translational research and publication, teaching, administration and service, along with a summary of accomplishments and goals with metrics.
In collaboration with the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, we work with faculty members and administrators to advance faculty diversity, as well as to enhance faculty development programs and policies. We seek to create a culture where faculty members can succeed and be a thriving force in the fabric of the institution.
