FEATURED EVENT New Faculty Workshop - Jump-start your academic career! October 10, 2019
For new faculty, navigating the culture of UC Davis Health, their department, work and life can be overwhelming. Mentoring relationships can help. We have added a speed mentoring session to this event to provide participants the opportunity to speak directly with senior faculty about their careers.
This workshop will also help faculty identify the skills needed for their continued academic success and will provide them with the resources available to support their work here at UC Davis Health. Important information will also be provided in the areas of teaching, research, faculty development, faculty mentoring and retirement planning.
