The purpose of this committee is to supervise the quality of the Faculty-in-Training Program relative to policy, admissions, advancements, graduation, and guides. The committee convenes monthly and consists of the 2 FIT co-directors, 4-5 faculty and usually 2-3 FITs (our goal is to keep the FIT representation on the committee proportional to the number of FITS in the program at any given time).
The FIT representatives are selected from among interested FITs by their fellow FITs when an opening becomes available. The FIT representatives generally serve 1 to 2-year terms. Their role is to advocate for FIT needs on the FIT Committee, to assist with administrative projects, and to coordinate FIT-FIT Committee communications. While the committee acknowledges the importance of input from the FIT representatives, the FIT representatives do not vote on advancement or graduation decisions. FIT input in developing training needs assessment, policies, materials and procedures is welcome. This is a wonderful venue for becoming more active in Academy work, having some input into the FIT experience, and learning about effective leadership.
The FIT Co-Directors are faculty of the AACH selected by the Education Committee to provide leadership to the FIT Program. In their role, they provide supervisory mentorship and guidance to the FITs in the form of individual meetings with each FIT at both the Winter Course and ENRICH and additional email or phone communication as needed. They also co-chair the FIT Committee. They serve in overlapping three-year terms.
