Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (Lurie Children’s) are large and complex institutions that can be difficult to navigate. The mission of the Office of Faculty Development, within the Department of Pediatrics, is to create a supportive environment and provide easy access to helpful resources. We hope our efforts assist faculty members in setting and pursuing paths to successful, fulfilling careers.
The Office of Faculty Development offers mentor consultation, advice on building a mentoring team, referral to resources outside the Department, review of promotion portfolio, sounding board for academic issues.
