The Junior Faculty Development Program (JFDP) Alumni Luncheon was held Thursday, May 4, 2023, in Pinn Hall Conference Center. Attendees were able to reconnect with members of their JFDP cohort and learn about their work and careers since completion of the program. It was also a time to celebrate accomplishments, which included attaining promotions, receiving awards, obtaining NIH grant funding, invitations to speak at conferences, and appointments to national boards and committees. The group also shared feedback about how the planning team can improve the program, overall. JFDP has graduated 93 faculty in seven cohorts since the program launched 2016.
The luncheon was hosted by Susan M. Pollart, MD, MS, Ruth E. Murdaugh Professor of Family Medicine and Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development and Troy Buer, PhD, Director for Faculty Development and Assistant Professor of Medical Education, who oversee the JFDP curriculum, as part o the School of Medicine’s Office for Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development.
