Mass General HomeCenter for Faculty Development - A Resource for Faculty

The Office for Research Careers (ORC) at MGH is a branch of the Center for Faculty Development (CFD) and was created to facilitate the career advancement of research faculty and trainees.


The ORCD, Office for Research Career Development, addresses the specific needs of the research faculty and trainees at MGH. Areas of emphasis for this office are to:

  • Develop programs to advance the career development pathways of research faculty in an academic medical center environment.
  • Strengthen the career guidance and mentoring offered to trainees.
  • Enhance communication within the research community.
  • Provide individual counseling, advice and support.


The Progress and Annual Career Planning Form was changed last September! The Guidelines for Research Fellows (Postdoc Policy) was also updated.

Visit the Guidelines for Research Fellows page for a copy of the Planning Form, as well as other important templates such as: MGH Employment Letter, MGH Termination Letter and Intellectual Property Certification Form.
