DOM PhD Community
The research, education, and leadership contributions by PhD and other non-clinical faculty in our ten Divisions and the Vascular Medicine Institute (VMI) are central to the Department of Medicine's ongoing academic success. We are committed to providing a stimulating, innovative, and secure work environment for these faculty. The DOM PhD and non-clinical faculty have established a community with the central goals of creating bridges between Divisions, promoting mutual support among faculty, and providing an environment that nurtures innovation through collaboration. Our faculty have expertise that spans basic biology to health services and have developed cutting-edge technical advances in multiple areas including drug discovery, animal modeling, imaging, human behavior and organization, and bioinformatics.
The DOM PhD and non-clinical community comprises more than 100 members, equally divided between male and female faculty. Each Division and the VMI has a faculty representative as a member of a Task Force that directs and coordinates activities of the DOM PhD and non-clinical community.
Several on-campus afternoon retreats to date have featured presentations by the Chair of DOM; guest speakers on a variety of topics, including entrepreneurism in the an academic environment; round table discussions of challenges and opportunities facing our DOM PhD and non-clinical community; results of internal surveys; and sharing of scientific interests and technical capabilities.
Our Task Force meets quarterly throughout the year to strategize and plan future events and we meet as a community for retreats or social gatherings at least once each semester.
