The school’s Office of Faculty Affairs supports the recruitment, retention, and professional development of Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine faculty. The office encourages enhancement of skills, promotes direction of scholarly endeavor, offers advice to the faculty committees responsible for academic life, and provides oversight of policies summarized in the Faculty Bylaws.
The school is committed to a faculty with diversity. The school recognizes that a diverse faculty—along with a diverse staff and a diverse student body—will provide its medical students with the opportunity to learn and experience the breadth of medical settings in preparation for medical practice.
The school is also committed to excellence in teaching. The school has teamed up with Carilion Clinic, the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, and Jefferson College of Health Sciences to establish the Teaching Excellence Academy for Collaborative Healthcare (TEACH), which aims to create a community of educators and foster their development as teachers, learners, and educational researchers.
