Announcements of leadership opportunities for faculty are posted regularly on the OFD website. Two leadership development programs have been developed in collaboration with the Department of Education and Learning: a core leadership program for mid-level leaders, and a senior leadership program for Division Directors. Both are intensive, year-long programs that include leadership fundamentals and core skills curricula.
The OFD provides skills training for academic mentors and mentees, and is in the process of developing a comprehensive mentorship program for the Department of Pediatrics that will be launched in the academic year 2011-2012.
Opportunities to network with other faculty are built into OFD seminars, and additional networking groups for faculty with different interests and backgrounds are being developed, including a work-life integration networking group. The OFD is also launching informal group networking programs such as Wine and Wisdom, in which a successful faculty member shares insights about his or her career with faculty.
The OFD, in collaboration with Diversity and Inclusion and the Office for Physician and Faculty Recruitment, is actively focusing on strategies to recruit, retain and promote women and minority faculty.
Cincinnati Children's and the University of Cincinnati offer numerous grantsmanship resources. The OFD maintains a list of those resources, and has developed a grantsmanship series to enhance existing resources.
