PRIDoC Pre-Conference Workshop: Indigenous Faculty Forum
The Second Indigenous Faculty Forum (IFF) is being held this year in conjunction with PRIDoC 2018 in Hilo, Hawaiʿi, hosted by the Northwest Native American Center of Excellence (NNACOE) and Native Hawaiian Center of Excellence (NHCOE).
The NNACOE is an innovative collaboration between Oregon Health & Science University, the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board and Portland State University, with the goal of recruiting, training and retaining American Indian & Alaska Native (AIAN) persons in the health professions.
The NHCOE, at the University of Hawaiʿi John A. Burns School of Medicine, seeks to improve the health of all Native Hawaiians through education, research, and community partnerships that build the capacity of Native Hawaiian students and faculty to succeed in medicine.
The IFF was created in order to foster a supportive space for Indigenous faculty to come together, foster community, and develop skills to successfully navigate an academic career.
1. Provide instruction in key professional competencies leading to academic success.
2. Address unique cultural considerations for Indigenous faculty.
3. Foster networking and enhanced ongoing career support for Indigenous faculty.
