Leadership Messages

Message from the Senior Associate Dean


As Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Well-Being and Development, my goal is to understand and harness the connection between faculty well-being and faculty career development to promote the well-being and professional satisfaction of the Mount Sinai faculty.  Our team has created a mission, vision and set of goals for the new Office of Faculty Development that addresses faculty development needs by 1) creating and supporting leadership development opportunities; 2) enhancing career advancement information and programming; and 3) promoting mentoring training and infrastructure within and across departments. I believe strongly that educational programming paired with usable tools and sound infrastructure can help our faculty learn valuable knowledge and skills, harness their passions and reach their goals. With our core partner office, the Office of Well-Being and Resilience, we will utilize strategies to improve and enhance career development, mentorship and leadership skills that will in turn, enhance faculty well-being.  Through other key collaborations with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of Gender Equity in Science and Medicine, we will ensure that diversity, equity and inclusion are core principles that permeate all of the programming we support and provide.  We encourage faculty members to reach out with questions and concerns about their professional development and we will do our best to learn about and align our programming with the needs of our faculty.  I look forward to our work together!
