Faculty Advance: A Faculty Development Program
NYU Langone is committed to fostering the professional development of our faculty. Our Faculty Advance program is designed to encourage professional development in science and medicine to an all-inclusive community of NYU Langone academic junior and mid-career faculty.
Co-directed by Joan F. Cangiarella, MD, Georgeann McGuinness, MD, and David T. Stern, MD, PhD, the Faculty Advance program is open to all faculty. The program comprises a range of presentation formats throughout the year to facilitate constructive and didactic conversations that inform faculty of academic realities and help them navigate academia toward fulfilling their career aspirations. Past topics have included the following:
- The Secret Chord: How I Made It: A Conversation with Robert I. Grossman, MD, CEO of NYU Langone Health and dean of NYU Grossman School of Medicine
- What It Takes: Mentorship, Sponsorship, and Intentional Team Building with Mark B. Pochapin, MD
- What It Takes: Advancing Your Career through Collaborative Research with Olugbenga G. Ogedegbe, MD, MPH

- Never Enough Time? Time Management Skills Workshop facilitated by NYU Langone Organization Development and Learning
- Approaching Promotion (Over Lunch) with Joan F. Cangiarella, MD, and Georgeann McGuinness, MD

About Our Events
Our events offer multiple opportunities for faculty to learn how to advance their careers.
Conversations with NYU Langone Leaders: “The Roadmap”
To be held twice annually, these evening panels provide leaders with a forum to describe their “roadmap” and personal pathways, challenges, successes, and failures in achieving their accomplishments. Panels and speakers include leaders in science, hospital administration, clinical care, and education.
What It Takes
These small group sessions occur six times annually and provide an opportunity for leaders to offer their views on diverse topics including what it takes to succeed in science; how to get noticed for the next leadership role; why careers may not move forward as planned; and coping strategies for successful work–life integration. Small groups allow for an informal discussion and the opportunity for questions and answers.
Approaching Promotions (Over Lunch)
These small group sessions occur five times annually and provide an opportunity for junior and mid-career faculty to learn about expectations for promotion on various career paths and to ask questions of faculty development leaders. To focus these discussions, sessions are offered to tenure-eligible and non-tenure–eligible faculty separately. Each sessions is limited to 20 faculty. Advance registration is required.
Skill-building workshops are offered twice a year and provide an opportunity for development in areas that are important for professional success in virtually any career path. Speakers and trainers approach topics such as negotiating for success, time management, and managing conflict.
Junior Faculty Town Hall
The junior faculty town hall is hosted annually by the Office of Faculty and Academic Affairs. This session orients junior faculty to career development resources and provides information on faculty tracks, promotion, mentorship, and roles in education. Presenters include the associate dean for education, faculty, and academic affairs; the associate dean for mentoring and professional development; and the director of the educator community.
Incoming Faculty Orientation
These events are held twice a year and are intended to give a warm welcome to new hires. Orientation provides faculty with an opportunity to meet leadership, network with colleagues, and get a brief overview of resources available to faculty.
Our annual book club is organized to promote thoughtful discussion on leadership models and skills, stimulate conversations on professional development, and build community across our faculty through inspiring, wide-ranging discourse. Discussions are led by faculty with an interest or expertise in the selected subject area.
