A Professional Development Milestone for Early-Career Clinician-Educator Faculty Members
Congratulations to the most recent graduates of the Clinician-Educator Faculty Development Program (CEFDP)!
The CEFDP is a Department of Psychiatry professional development opportunity for early-career clinician-educators, specially designed to enhance clinical and academic skills and to foster peer network connections.
Because the transition to a faculty position in an academic medical center can be challenging and complex, the CEFDP provides formalized support to help assistant professor-level faculty members navigate their career progression. The program provides practical guidance on topics including goal setting; establishing a mentoring team; teaching and mentoring; effective team building; dissemination of knowledge; and preparing for the promotion process.
