Course: Promotion 201

Promotion 201 is a video course designed to give an overview of the promotion process and a starting point to prepare a promotion dossier. The School of Medicine has a faculty orientation lecture called “Promotion 101” delivered during annual new employee orientation sessions. This course continues that training in specific terms with examples. Our goal is to help early career faculty members make a plan for meeting promotion standards as they build careers on the faculty at CU Anschutz. Course completion earns a certificate.

Lecture Series: Learn with Us: Short Lessons from Department Leaders

A leader is nothing without their team. A leader is defined by their team, and each member of their team has to feel as though their leader is accountable. Every member of the team has to feel as though they are part of something that is bigger than they are, has to feel autonomous, and really embrace accountability.  What I ask every member of my team is to not just be a leader, but to be a force multiplier. That means by being together, the sum of the parts is far greater than just being individuals.
