Current Faculty

The School of Medicine at UAB is dedicated to supporting faculty members in their professional development. This includes traditional career development related to promotion and tenure and also leadership development for those faculty members who aspire to make systematic change. Faculty engagement is also a focus of our activities as it is the faculty who must engage to fulfill the School of Medicine mission. Finally, improving mentorship has been a priority as there is a substantial body of evidence that shows that mentorship is important for all important faculty related outcomes throughout an entire academic career.
