A WARM WELCOME: Slavin addresses new faculty members.
The MGH welcomes more than 200 new physicians and scientists every year. With any new job, the first days, weeks, months and even year can be challenging and overwhelming. To help new faculty across all departments acclimate, the MGH Center for Faculty Development hosted its third annual New Faculty Orientation Oct. 9 in the Their Conference Room.
The daylong event provided participants with an opportunity to hear from senior faculty leaders and to learn about available resources, research and education opportunities. The session also featured information about hospital services such as the Employee Assistance Program and the Multicultural Affairs Office.
Ann Klibanski, MD, director of the Center for Faculty Development, and Peter L. Slavin, MD, MGH president, welcomed participants. “Thank you for joining the faculty here at the MGH,” said Slavin. “I hope all of you will have long, successful careers and as much fun over the next years as I’ve had in my last 29 here.”
Greg Pauly, MGPO chief operating officer, who provided an overview of the physicians’ organization, noted that it is not unusual for employees to remain at the hospital for the better part of their careers. “Although, I’ve been at the MGH for 21 years, I’m still considered a new employee,” said Pauly. “It’s a remarkable institution, and I hope you enjoy your tenure here.”
