This one-year program is designed to orient all new faculty to the OSU College of Medicine faculty (NOTE: you do not have to be new to medicine, just to OSU medicine). Not to be confused with The Ohio State University Faculty Orientation or various hospital orientation programs, this monthly meeting will provide new faculty with tips and facts to navigate academic medicine and thrive in your faculty roles at the College of Medicine.

The New Faculty Academy is one of the critical components of the College of Medicine’s Center for Faculty Advancement, Mentoring and Engagement (FAME), which provides comprehensive guidance, education, programmatic support, and recognition and reward to all members of the faculty as they pursue diverse domains of career emphasis and excellence. This program equips faculty for success in academic medicine careers here at Ohio State’s College of Medicine.
