Experienced program leaders from a wide range of settings will address questions in the following areas: division mission, vision and structure; job descriptions and FTE allocation; mentorship; development and maintenance of (non-) funded research activities; and relationships with other division chiefs, the Department Chair, and non-physician leadership.
