The MCG Office for Faculty Success serves faculty and the academic/clinical departments in which they reside.

Our purpose is to foster a culture of faculty success through faculty and departmental consultation, assessment, development, education, and evaluation germane to faculty mentorship, career development, and retention.


Mentoring is a critical piece for the success of faculty in academic medicine. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, mentoring is associated with job satisfaction, productivity, retention, and increased sense of "fit" with one's institution.

Career Development

The Office for Faculty Success operates on the premise that faculty will have the greatest satisfaction and returns on their careers when they feel ownership over them.


Diverse, capable, engaged faculty are our most valuable resource in academic medicine.


Our consultations services can benefit faculty from career entry through retirement. We assist people in thinking through personal career trajectories as well as those in leadership roles seeking to enrich faculty development within their departments.

Faculty Academic Development Plans

Faculty Academic Development Plans are required for all new faculty and strongly recommended for any faculty who have not yet submitted promotion packets at the Assistant Professor level.
