Professional Development, Scholarship & Educational Initiatives
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT/SCHOLARSHIP/EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVES
One of the key foundational aspects of the CTI will be the specific focus on academic and scholarship programs.
- A CTI Scholarship Seminar Series will be launched in September, 2019. This program will include a Journal Club Series for UMSOM faculty to present their scholarly work and for UMSOM colleagues to learn about the literature and methods for analysis of CTI-related projects. The series will also include leadership keynote presentations by campus and regional/national leaders in this field.
- National Academy of Sciences Consortium. The SOM has been invited to join an Action Collaborative sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences. This consortium of universities, colleges and academic medical centers will develop, implement and study interventions designed to reduce and eliminate disrespectful behaviors and sexual harassment. The Collaborative will launch in June of 2019 and conclude work in 2024.
- Projects by students/trainees. The CTI is committed to mentoring and promoting the scholarly work of projects developed by students and trainees. CTI will host an annual CTI Innovations Forum for abstract presentations by faculty, staff, trainees and students with feedback and mentoring to presenters for both presentation and publication in external settings.
