Office of Professional Development – Celebrate

 

We feel that it is important to celebrate the successes of faculty at the UMKC School of Medicine.  Annually, there is a Promotion and Faculty Award Celebration that occurs in the fall of the academic year.  At that time faculty that promoted at each of the school’s affiliates are acknowledged.  Additionally, faculty that received SOM Faculty Awards for excellence are acknowledged.

An announcement that the Faculty Awards Review Committee (FARC) is seeking nominations for UMKC SOM faculty awards is typically sent out at the end of the academic year with a specific deadline.  Each award has specific requirements and necessary materials that need to be submitted for consideration.  Each award can be found in the Tab “Celebrate” on the Office of Professional Development webpage.  If you would like to be considered to be a member of the Faculty Awards Review Committee, please notify Dr. Sullivan at Sullivanchr@umkc.edu.

The FARC also seeks nominations for university-based awards annually.  Announcements regarding criteria, materials, and deadlines will be sent out on the Faculty listserv.

What Can You Learn Conducting a Manuscript Peer Review?by Brian Carter, MD

Being a peer reviewer for a journal is a scholarly activity that is recognized as research when applying for promotion at the SOM.   Academic faculty are often called upon to be peer reviewers of manuscripts submitted to journals for publication. But how does one conduct a review? What is important? And how much, or little, should be said? In this OFD presentation Dr. Brian Carter, the Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Pediatrics, will address the importance of the peer review process and how you can become a good reviewer.

Well-Being Index

Well-Being Index

 

Your well-being as a physician or non-clinical faculty is vital to the learning environment and, ultimately, to patient outcomes. Assess your well-being and compare your results nationally.
University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Medicine invites you to participate in the Well-Being Index. This validated tool is an opportunity to help you better understand your overall well-being and areas of risk compared to other physicians or non-clinical faculty across the nation, as well as provide access to local and national resources.
It’s important to note, this tool is 100% anonymous – your information and score are private and your individual score will not be shared with University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Medicine, or anyone for that matter.
Setting up an account is easy and completing the Index takes less than one minute.  There are only 9 questions for physicians and 7 questions for non-clinical faculty.
Learn How The Physician Well-Being Index Works

 

Track your well-being over time.
The Well-Being Index tracks your results over time. This allows you to correlate changes in well-being results to life events. Based upon these results, the tool provides resources when they’re needed the most.
Compare your scores to others nationally.
The most accurate way to assess your well-being is to compare your results to others on a national level. This allows you to see in which areas you exceed and which areas you’re at higher risk compared to your peers.
Access free resources.

We strive to provide the best education and awareness through resources. After completing the Well-Being Index, you will have access to both national and local resources across multiple categories and topics.

 

The SOM will provide reminders to assess their Well-Being every 6 months, but individual faculty can take the survey up to monthly on their own to track their progress.
