Get Involved

Part of professional growth includes getting involved in committees across the health system and school. Committees represent an opportunity to participate in the work of our institution.

The Pediatrics Faculty Development Committee also plans social events each year (e.g. trivia night, annual holiday party, picnic).

Faculty Development Programs

Faculty in the Department of Pediatrics have access to a variety of school-wide and department-specific faculty development programs.

Leadership in Academic Medicine (LAMP) is a program for faculty in the second and third year of their appointment. This school-wide program teaches faculty members valuable leadership skills and is also a great way to meet other faculty from across the school.

The Faculty Development Committee provides an education series workshop that is open to all faculty members within the department.

Upcoming Faculty Development Workshops

Past Faculty Development Workshops

New Faculty

The Department of Pediatrics strives to create a welcoming environment. Joining a large organization can be overwhelming and the Faculty Development Committee has developed several programs to help new faculty. New faculty can expect to hear from a member of the Pediatrics Faculty Development Committee within their first few months. The Faculty Development Committee understands the importance of ensuring partners attain employment and are committed to helping. Learn more about the school's Dual Career Support.

Promotion and Tenure Support

IU School of Medicine and the Department of Pediatrics offer support, information sessions, and help to prepare for the Promotion and Tenure process.

Peer review is one component of the promotion and tenure process. All faculty on the clinical and tenure tracks must have a peer review of teaching included in their promotion materials. The Peer Review Form Builder is a tool to help colleagues provide robust feedback for this process.
