Faculty and Staff Development

Faculty Initiatives Heading link

There is a national shortage of under-represented in medicine (URiM) physicians and medical school faculty. UIC aims to diversify its physician workforce. To meet that goal, efforts are needed to attract and retain URiM faculty. This goal can be accomplished through increased visibility and support, opportunities for growth and promotion, and programs to enhance faculty wellness.

  • Increased retention and satisfaction among current URiM faculty.
  • Increased visibility and support for URiM faculty with potential for recruiting trainees and additional faculty
  • Increased opportunity for growth and promotion within the COM for URiM faculty
  • Increased faculty support, wellness and satisfaction.
