We know choosing The Ohio State University as your professional home is a major commitment. Our FAME program was created to help ensure your success here. FAME fosters the skills that benefit individuals and our College alike: leadership, scholarship, communication and organizational success. We offer a wealth of mentoring opportunities, competency-based instruction and recognition programs that foster professional fulfillment and growth. With FAME, you’ll follow a personalized career plan based on annual goals and career priorities.
As its name implies, the objectives of FAME are to advance the careers of our faculty from all backgrounds and disciplines; mentor and advocate for all members of faculty, and engage them to achieve personal goals, as well as those of the University and Medical Center.
Our integrated curriculum begins with mentoring. Each junior faculty member identifies a mentor with the first year of employment, who helps them develop a personalized career plan. With that established, faculty may choose to participate in FAMEPRO, a mentored, short-term clinical research project competition. Special interest groups, such as the Faculty Leadership Institute and the Women in Medicine and Science Committee (WIMS) provide many ways opportunities to network, lead and advocate.
