Our History

Faculty Development officially began in 1998, although its foundation was laid much earlier than that. From the beginning, it has been our goal to address our faculty needs of instructional skill development, academic socialization and mentoring. 

Since our inception, we've done countless local and national seminars and events. Our leadership has even been to Afghanistan to share our skills with faculty development programs abroad.

In July 2013, Howard Liu, M.D., was appointed director of faculty development programs, taking over from Myrna Newland, M.D.

Then in 2014, the Faculty Development team grew to include a dedicated associate as well as a communications and media coordinator. In 2015, Dr. Liu was appointed vice chancellor for faculty development.
