Faculty Development

Mid-Career Leadership Program

The Mid-Career Leadership Program (MCLP) is a series of workshops designed to engage primarily Associate level faculty in learning core competencies necessary for effective department and/or section/division leadership.  The didactic and colloquial sessions will provide practical examples and applications of the core competencies necessary to lead departments, divisions, centers and other combined clinical and academic enterprises at UC Davis Health System.  Mid-career 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 minimum of 80 percent of the courses.
