As a department, we strive to promote a diverse, respectful environment where our colleagues can excel in the interrelated areas of patient care, education, and research. The Department of Radiology supports faculty development to assist the career advancement of all faculty by providing mentoring, education, and intentional career guidance.
These efforts include a formal faculty development and mentoring program for junior and mid-career faculty, identifying and encouraging appropriate faculty development opportunities, accumulating and making accessible useful information to promote workplace efficiency and encourage teaching and scholarly activities. Drs. Fordham and Henderson meet periodically with junior faculty to familiarize them with UNC’s promotions process, mentoring policy and development opportunities.
Learn more about the Department’s mentoring program via our Radiology Mentoring Series. The Office of Faculty Affairs & Leadership Development within the UNC School of Medicine is also a great resource.
