If you were hired in 2012 as a faculty member in the School of Medicine, please hold Oct. 1, from 3 - 4:30 p.m. for the School of Medicine orientation. Formal invitations to follow.

Dr. Bill Roper, Dean of the School of Medicine, Dr. Paul Godley, Executive Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs, and Dr. Tony Lindsey, Physician-in-Chief of UNC Hospitals, will welcome faculty members and introduce them to key staff members.

Drs. Roper, Godley and Lindsey will present a brief overview of the School of Medicine and UNC Health Care. About a dozen School of Medicine and university organizations will have representatives on hand to chat with faculty members, answer questions, and showcase resources. The following groups have committed to participate in the event: Academy of Educators, SOM Office of Research, NC TraCS Institute, Public Affairs and Marketing, OIS, and the Health Sciences Library.

A formal invitation will be sent next week directly to faculty members hired during 2012.
