Academy for Development in Academic Medicine Group on stairs

The Office of Graduate Medical Education, in partnership with the Office of Faculty Development, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Professional Development, has launched a program for residents and graduate students who are interested in careers in academic medicine. This program, called the Academy for Development in Academic Medicine (ADAM), began July of 2017. The 1st year pilot was successful and we are now into our second year. Out of the 25 residents and graduate students involved in ADAM, 72% identified with at least one of our Mission-Based Diversity Group.

ADAM is a longitudinal program that occurs throughout one's graduate/resident educational tenure and pairs graduate students and residents with faculty mentors to develop the skills needed for a career in academic medicine. Educational sessions are scheduled every 2-3 months and cover topics related to the development of academic medicine career skills. The program will be a 3-4 year longitudinal program, culminating with a longitudinal scholarly project and a certificate of completion.
