FAME Unites Emerging Leaders (FUEL) 

FAME is now accepting applications for FUEL, a new leadership cohort program. This program was designed to enhance faculty's knowledge in leadership and building/developing more effective teams. Classes will be offered in person on the 2nd Thursday of each month, September 2023 - January 2024 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in Meiling Hall (the January session will be from 5:30 - 7:15pm). The fee for this cohort program is $500 per person (which will be billed to the department). Note, there is limited availability as the cohort is open to only 25 faculty members from the College of Medicine. FUEL marks the second leadership cohort for FAME, joining our flagship cohort, Faculty Leadership Institute (FLI).
