  • Do you wonder about how to make that next step in your academic career? Or maybe you just got a new directorship and are wondering how to lead your new program.


  • Maybe you are already in deep with important responsibilities and now you are wondering about how to manage your time on top of a busy clinical schedule and hectic home life.


  • Are you feeling a bit isolated and want more tangible connections with UC Davis’ diverse networks?



Whatever your aspirations, or inspirations, or even trepidations are the UC Davis Faculty Development and Diversity program can help!

Our Vision

Professional development through the power of diversity and curiosity.

Our Mission

Our mission is to nourish a diverse and inclusive community of faculty who will meet the present and future challenges of academic health.


This NEW blog is part of a new initiative to help make faculty development activities more accessible to UC Davis faculty.  As the new Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Diversity, I am proud to be “born and raised” as an academic health faculty member at UC Davis and beneficiary of its faculty development and diversity programs.
