The UAB Office of Pediatric Faculty Development (OFD) exists to support the individual career development of our faculty and to advance institutional and departmental goals in the areas of teaching and service. 

The OFD seeks to create an academic environment and programs that 
   1) support, enhance, and reward the professional activities of faculty; 
   2) promote recruitment, retention, and academic career advancement of all faculty; 
   3) enhance leadership development of a diverse faculty; and 
   4) improve career satisfaction and promote work-life integration among faculty.
