2024 ADEA Mid-career Allied Dental Faculty Workshop

Dates: May 31, 2024
Venue: ADEA Headquarters
Location: Washington, DC 

Pathways for Mid-career Expansion
Refocus, Recharge and Rebrand Yourself

The ADEA Mid-career Allied Dental Faculty Workshop will provide professional development opportunities for mid-career faculty (i.e., in full-time academia for 7-10 years) for their next-stage careers. The mid-career period is an exciting time to refocus, recharge and rebrand yourself while collaborating, taking risks and moving up in your career. Yet, without the right professional development offerings and support network, mid-career malaise and burnout can easily set in.

The 2024 ADEA Mid-career Allied Dental Faculty Workshop is designed to help you rebrand yourself, rebuild your mid-career toolbox, maintain your momentum and chart your path forward, providing a unique, first-of-its-kind professional development offering to support allied dental faculty at this stage.

If you are an allied dental faculty member with 7-10 years of full-time experience in academia ready to take charge of the next-stage of your career, join us at this inaugural workshop.

Please note: This workshop is not for new faculty, faculty with more than a decade of experience in academia, or part-time faculty. The workshop will focus entirely on skill sets for faculty in full-time academia for 7-10 years.
