Faculty Leadership Program Schedule

The Faculty Leadership Program is conducted as a series of integrated seminars, one-on-one meetings for academic career goal setting, peer-mentoring, feedforward planning, applied practice, and feedback. The 128 continuing professional development hours include on- and off-site engagement with the class of Leadership Faculty Fellows from OU Health Sciences Center colleges. There are approximately 16 program days during the 11-month program. The time commitment averages out to about 5% work effort for typical academic health professionals or biomedical sciences faculty members. Participation in all scheduled program elements is expected.
