Last year, we wrote about the Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP), which can be read here and here. This is a program that provides networking, social opportunities, and peer mentoring among colleagues who are at a similar stage in their career; promotes the development and advancement of junior faculty through seminars and mentored scholarly projects; and facilitates mentoring relationships between senior and junior faculty.

On April 11 and 25, the second cohort of 17 junior faculty members presented their scholarly projects, which explored a range of topics including an evaluation of machine learning for assignment of triage severity level in the emergency department, predicting cardiac instability following seizures, contraception and the medically complex woman, and improving access to kidney transplant for Hispanic minorities in the state of Virginia. The list of 2018 JFDP projects can be found here.

Congratulations to the 2017-2018 JFDP participants who graduated from the program!
