The Faculty Scholars Program is named for Katherine Dodd, MD, a member of the Vanderbilt faculty from 1926-1944, who represented the ideal clinician and educator. She possessed outstanding clinical skills, a strong commitment to teaching, and made numerous contributions of new knowledge that improved children's health.
The program helps faculty members develop and enhance their skills as clinicians and educators and provides an opportunity to conduct scholarly research, conduct and evaluate an educational project, or implement and evaluate a clinical or quality improvement project in an area of interest to their clinical area or to medical education. We seek to support junior faculty members as future leaders within our Department and the School of Medicine and to create a community of clinicians advancing education, practice, or policy in their area of focus.
