The University of Toronto Centre for Faculty Development, New and Emerging Academic Leaders (NEAL) Program is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 class!

They are inviting applications from individuals, both nationally and internationally, with faculty appointments in Faculties of Medicine or Health Sciences who have academic leadership roles and/or responsibilities. For more information review their brochure: http://www.cfd.med.utoronto.ca/programs/NEAL_Brochure7.pdf  The deadline is April 22, 2014 (for early bird tuition rate) and June 2, 2014 (final deadline).
