S.M.A.R.T. (School of Medicine Advancement, Retention, and Training) Staff originated from the Office of the Dean in 2014 as a way for University of Louisville School of Medicine staff to have opportunities for development, camaraderie, and communication. Its design is structured to offer members professional and personal development opportunities throughout the work day. After taking a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proud to announce the return of S.M.A.R.T. Staff! Recurring monthly programs will be offered both virtually and in-person to stimulate, motivate, and continue innovation at the SOM to achieve commitment to our mission, vision, and goals. We welcome all SOM staff to participate in events and we look forward to connecting with you, soon! Questions about upcoming programs or ideas? Email us at .
