Faculty Development

Early Career Leadership Program

The Early Career Leadership Program (ECLP) is a highly interactive curriculum designed to engage primarily Assistant Professors (or other School of Medicine faculty new to UC Davis Health System) in learning core competencies necessary for effective career development and professional advancement.  The ECLP concretely examines what is required both professionally and personally to advance in academic medicine.  The signature style of the sessions is collaborative and collegial, allowing participants to interact and fully explore the various topics of discussion. Faculty are invited to attend all sessions, or only those of interest to them.  A certificate of completion will be provided to all faculty who attend a minumum of 80 percent of the courses.


The courses we plan to offer for the ECLP for the coming year are listed below.  We will add the date of each course next to the title, as soon as they are scheduled.  Please note: This is a preliminary list of courses and the actual list may be slightly different.
