Conference Application Sponsorship Opportunities

The Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine Office of Academic Culture and Community will sponsor faculty members to different AAMC conferences for professional development. We will sponsor the cost of registration fee, and we ask the department to support selected faculty in their travel related expenses and ensuring they have protected time to attend free of clinical duties and other responsibilities. We look forward to partnering with departments to support our faculty. 


Office of Faculty - Faculty Development

The Office of Faculty provides various programs and professional development opportunities for faculty. They serve as a central resource for the Health Sciences by providing guidance, resources, and training to enhance the success of individual faculty, including dependent care stipends, leadership trainings and hosting Women's Leadership Day, coaching, and more. 


Resiliency Center

The Resiliency Center is designed to foster wellness and resilience for all employees within University of Utah Health. The Resiliency Center serves as a hub for coordinating and expanding innovative programming while also housing resources essential to professional fulfillment. We aim to promote personal resilience, reduce individual burden and create an optimal work environment.

  • Our vision: Faculty and staff passionate about and energized by work.
  • Our mission: Promote faculty and staff wellness through advocacy, collaboration and innovative programming focused on individual and system resilience.
