Faculty Development & Mentoring

At NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine, we ensure that our faculty have the support, information, and resources to advance professionally. We provide structure, tools, and guidance through professional development workshops and research mentoring.

Our assistant dean for faculty development and mentoring, Jeannine Nonaillada, PhD, oversees ongoing needs assessments in each department using faculty evaluations, peer performance reviews, feedback from course and clerkship directors, and student exit interviews and outcomes data.

A physician education committee then reviews this information to determine priority areas, develop training sessions, and recruit faculty educators with the appropriate expertise to meet our needs.

Faculty Development Sessions

We host faculty development sessions to help our faculty and staff develop important skills to improve their teaching abilities and methods, as well as scholarly activity.

Sessions cover techniques for innovative teaching, incorporating reflective practices and problem-based learning techniques. Other sessions have offered tips for conducting systematic reviews, understanding leadership styles, publishing in medical education journals, and more. To learn more about our faculty development sessions, contact Dr. Nonaillada at Jeannine.Nonaillada@NYULangone.org.

Faculty Scholars Program

Our Faculty Scholars Program trains all levels of faculty in how to become master educators and scholars. Classes for educators include skills for curriculum development, use of simulation techniques, remediation strategies for learners, and giving effective feedback. Classes for researchers include searching and appraising the medical literature, research survey methods and design, data analysis and interpretation, and writing for publication.

We also offer a variety of services through our Office of Sponsored Programs for faculty who seek research funding. This includes assistance developing study proposals and budgets, fulfilling regulatory compliance requirements, managing intellectual property rights, and negotiating contracts.

Junior Faculty Interest Group

Faculty who are within seven years of their post-graduate training and who are at the assistant professor level, often referred to as junior faculty, have to navigate a complex system of institutional productivity metrics and requirements for promotion, while developing a clinical and/or research focus. Success during this time is augmented by mentorship, resourcefulness, and support from other faculty. The Junior Faculty Interest Group, led by Marc J. Braunstein, MD, PhD, and Jeannine Nonaillada, PhD, has been created to facilitate interaction among faculty with less than seven years’ experience to support personal and profession growth by sharing ideas and experiences that might be beneficial to the group. This group is separate from our Faculty Council and faculty development and mentoring sessions, which serve as official forums for faculty concerns and professional development.

Junior faculty from various departments and divisions are invited to join meetings every two to three months. General topics for discussion include promotion metrics, research and interprofessional collaboration, teaching, mentorship and networking, and work–life integration.

For more information about the Junior Faculty Interest Group, email Dr. Braunstein at Marc.Braunstein@NYULangone.org.
