IU School of Medicine’s OFAPD greatly values the input of our faculty. As such, much of the collected data inform the types of programmatic and policy interventions developed at the school level. These data enable OFAPD to make evidence-based decisions on which faculty development offerings and initiatives best suit the needs of our faculty. Ultimately, we are interested in understanding what motivates faculty, what retains faculty, and what makes all faculty – men and women, URM and majority – satisfied, engaged, and productive.
Our faculty surveys and assessment tools are not simply isolated research projects. They are essential elements of a systemic approach to faculty and organizational development within the IU School of Medicine.
