New Faculty Orientation
The goal of the New Faculty Orientation is to provide new faculty at all levels with an overview of the institution and to assist them in beginning a successful career at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS). The half-day orientation covers a core set of information that is essential for all faculty, as well as information tailored to specific needs for academic advancement and professional development. A key component of the orientation is the Individual Opportunity Plan (IOP), a self-assessment and career planning tool.
