Faculty Development Program

The Emory Division of Hospital Medicine Faculty Development Program allows faculty members within the Division the opportunity to participate in programs to enhance their skills in education, leadership, or quality improvement.

Applicants submit proposals in the early spring of each year describing how their training experience will develop their career and contribute to the goals of the Division. The Faculty Development Program awards approximately 10-15% of faculty within the Division yearly.

We also encourage all hospitalists to participate in faculty development activities offered by the Department of Medicine and School of Medicine: Emory Department of Medicine Faculty Development.
