New Faculty Orientation

The Office for Faculty Development hosts New Faculty Orientation once a year, typically in September/October. New Faculty Orientation is designed to give those who are relatively new to Duke an overview of research, education, and career development topics. The day also includes sessions on the appointments, promotion and tenure processes in both the basic and clinical sciences. Faculty in attendance will have a chance to meet and interact with school leaders and to learn about resources available to support their careers.

The next School of Medicine New Faculty Orientation will be held in the fall of 2018.
