Vice-Chair Faculty Development, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Indigeneity & Accessibility (EDIIA)

Dr. Nupura Bakshi

The role of the Vice Chair of Faculty Development (FD), Diversity and Equity and Global Health is to develop and oversee programs to promote these three areas. In FD, programs for Faculty will be developed, in areas such as mentorship, teaching, health and wellness, promotions, leadership and programs specific to stage-of-career, with the goal of providing Faculty with the support and skills necessary to reach their full potential. The area of Diversity and Equity involves hosting and supporting events specific to under-represented groups within DOVS and to ensure representation is considered in the Department. The goal in Global Health will be to provide a vision and strategic plan not only for the clinical care of underserviced populations both locally and abroad but also to foster symbiotic relationships that foster exchange, teaching, and excellence in Ophthalmology.
