05/5/17 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Coronado A

New faculty face unique challenges navigating the multifaceted domains of medical student education, residency training, and research. Family medicine departments often struggle to provide a comprehensive orientation for new faculty or a sustainable model for continuous faculty development. Presenters will provide a toolkit for new faculty, providing guidance on faculty development, mentorship, coaching, giving effective feedback, scholarly activity, research development, advocacy, and faculty and resident wellness. Presenters will facilitate discussions on common challenges and fundamental resources including an updated toolkit incorporating feedback from annual sessions presented 2011–2016. A faculty panel will present leadership development activities, mentorship and coaching styles for seeking adequate support, take questions and offer advice including guidance on seeking and giving feedback, establishing an advocacy learning plan and agenda, research development, and creating an educator portfolio. A balanced approach to faculty life is becoming increasingly important with the increased administrative burden and limited wellness resources. Presenters will review wellness activities and modeling work-life balance.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the most common personal, clinical, administrative, and academic challenges identified by new faculty in family medicine and identify resources for overcoming barriers.
  2. Identify effective mentoring and coaching concepts and styles, identify accessible opportunities for building mentoring and coaching relationships, and describe strategies for maintaining and modeling work-life balance.
  3. Implement faculty development programs, by learning about family medicine advocacy, faculty roles in supporting medical student interest in family medicine, and developing a pipeline of students and residents as new family medicine faculty.
