My name is Jen Hillyer, and I am excited to be part of the College of Medicine as the Director of Faculty Development.
Since arriving on campus in mid-July, I have enjoyed learning more about the college community I am serving. I’ve been attending meetings and reaching out to faculty and other stakeholders on an informal faculty development listening tour. I intend to have College of Medicine (COM) faculty development efforts informed by the needs and opportunities identified through these conversations while recognizing the strengths that exist in our learning communities.
Over the next three months, I hope to work with our faculty in identifying specific ways in which I can assist them in their different roles. Our faculty members are diverse and talented, and I want to ensure faculty development initiatives are prioritized according to their needs, along with meeting accreditation standards. I hope that these efforts will have an overall positive impact on both faculty and students in the College of Medicine.
In the future, I plan to formulate a mission and vision for faculty development in the COM and develop initiatives that embody and support our faculty’s passion and commitment to education. Thank you for the opportunity to serve and work with the College of Medicine faculty.
