About Us

The BWH Center for Faculty Development & Diversity is committed to providing programs and resources that support the wellness — the physical, emotional and intellectual well-being of faculty and trainees. By our definition, wellness incorporates occupational and environmental health with physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.

Our Wellness Programming parallels and complements our Narrative Medicine Initiative, which emphasizes the reflective and therapeutic significance of achieving narrative competence through literature and writing.

The CFDD offers mentorship opportunities and one-on-one consultations with faculty and senior staff to aid with personal and professional development, as well as programs which focus on holistic support, including the Wellness Programming and the Arriving and Thriving series for internationals.

We provide a wealth of relevant information for internationals seeking to establish a new home in Boston, as well as a Senior Faculty Toolkit to facilitate smooth transitions for faculty considering retirement. We also offer resources to help faculty and trainees find quality child care options, as well as information for families and for individuals involved with caregiving for older adults.

Through such programming and resources, we seek to help our community foster resilience and prevent physician burnout.
