The goal of this committee is to facilitate the academic career development of all faculty within the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, in alignment with the Department’s academic mission in research, education, and creative professional activity. The committee meets monthly, and is led by Dr. Shaheen Darani, Director of Faculty Development.
