Employee Development Grants For School of Medicine Career Staff Employees

2023 WINGS infographicThe WINGS Program provides tuition reimbursement assistance for the professional and career development of the School’s career staff employees. The Program’s goal is to aid in developing skills, knowledge and other qualities which prepare career staff employees for growth within the University. See FAQs here.

The Dean's Office provides annual funding in support of this employee development grant program. The School of Medicine endorses paid release time for courses which cannot be scheduled outside of work hours. Paid release time is left to departmental management’s discretion, as release time may not always be feasible due to operational necessity. The Dean’s Office administers the program’s application, selection, and reimbursement processes on a quarterly basis.
