Faculty Research Summit 2009

SON and SPHIS

Let’s Work in Parallel

and Create Synergy

University Structure

‘The best career advice to give to the young
faculty is: “Find out what you like doing best and
get someone to pay you for doing it”.’

Rationale for Summit

SPHIS faculty need individuals with clinical
expertise.

experts in public health.

Combining the skill sets from these two schools
is needed and warranted and will enhance our
research capabilities.
