Faculty Affairs Office
  • The primary mission of the Faculty Affairs Office (FAO) is to promote the well-being of the Faculty of Medicine (FM) and its constituencies.

    ​​​FAO’s work plans are to meet the growing and evolving academic needs of the faculty members. It is operated by a team of dedicated staff who are committed to offer the best services possible and to assist these members in their academic pursuits. Over the past few years, FAO has launched several projects to fulfill its primary mission of promoting the well-being of the Faculty of Medicine and its constituencies. These included: the establishment of a Faculty Management Information System (FMIS), recruitment of outstanding members across all disciplines; redefining academic tracks and corresponding appointment, promotion, tenure and reappointment criteria; offering new faculty orientation programs; conducting searches for chairs and heads of programs; revising the Medical Practice Plan; and designing a comprehensive faculty development program.​
