A Career Development Consultation is a free, one-time, brief meeting in which a senior faculty consultant assists a more junior faculty participant with targeted guidance around career goals and plans. This guidance is based on a review of the participant’s career development plan and CV, as well as conversations that emerge during the meeting.
Faculty members of any rank can request a CDC. Consultants are senior faculty from IUSM, and usually should be chosen from outside the participant’s home department.
Consultants will choose how many consultations they are able to commit to each year. Interested faculty will sign-up using an online form maintained by OFAPD. The OFAPD administrative staff will contact the consultant to schedule a mutually agreeable time for the meeting. Prior to the meeting, the consultant will receive an electronic copy of the participant’s career development plan and CV. During the meeting, the consultant and participant will discuss strategies for career advancement.
Both consultants and participants will receive brief follow-up surveys from OFAPD to evaluate the program. In addition, participants will be asked to specify three goals following their meeting. OFAPD will contact participants six months later to gather information on their progress toward these self-determined goals.
