New Faculty Orientation

The New Faculty Orientation (NFO) workshop on Preparing for Your Academic Career is your invitation to academic career orientation for new faculty members at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. During this session we get you started with  HSC community connections — people, information and resources you can engage to shape these important next steps along your academic career path. You will get started on your own career development plan for follow-up with your department leader.


Purpose:This orientation helps you start sorting your goals, activities and priorities for success as a faculty member at Oklahoma’s flagship academic health sciences and medical center. Meet OUHSC senior leaders and other new faculty colleagues from the seven Health Sciences Center colleges and leadership team. Find out what you need to know about academic career pathways, promotion and tenure expectations, and laying the groundwork for both immediate and longer-term success as a teacher, scholar and leader.  Learn about resources to support you in your work.
