    Collapse overview
    Robert J. Milner, Ph.D., is Associate Vice Provost for Professional Development and Professor of Neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS). He has a long-standing interest in the professional development and education of individuals at all stages of academic careers. His background as a basic science researcher in neuroscience and as a former department chair provides a wealth of experience and knowledge about the challenges of advancing an academic career. At UMMS, Dr. Milner is responsible for designing, implementing and evaluating professional development programs for faculty, including the Junior Faculty Development Program, and programs on mentoring, promotion and tenure, teaching and learning, and leadership.Dr. Milner received his doctoral degree from The Rockefeller University, completed postdoctoral training at The Salk Institute, and held faculty positions at Salk, the Research Institute of Scripps Clinic, and Penn State College of Medicine before moving to UMMS in July 2010. At Penn State College of Medicine, he directed the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, co-directed the Junior Faculty Development Program, co-directed the Intercollege Graduate Program in Neuroscience, and taught courses in neuroscience, professional development, and ethics. Dr. Milner received the Distinguished Educator Award from the Penn State College of Medicine in 2007. He is also the 2009 recipient of both the Graduate Program Leadership Award from Penn State’s Graduate School and the Faculty Mentorship Award from the Penn State Hershey Postdoctoral Society. His current scholarship focuses on faculty development and mentoring.
