Academic Infrastructure & Professional Development

Faculty  development is an essential element to ensure continuous quality improvement and to help faculty achieve their personal and professional goals. The professional development program at SHSU-COM will be organized and developed in three specific areas listed below under Education, Research and Service. 


Create and deliver programs that focus on best practices to develop and support faculty as medical educators and leaders in academic medicine.  Our focus on enriching a culture of support and opportunities, which are fundamental in accomplishing the SHSU-COM’s mission and in enabling the college to attract and retain talented faculty.


Develop a culture where faculty are engaged and invested in faculty development and its value in educational and career development. 

These elements align with the overall mission and vision of SHSU as well.
