All faculty regardless of discipline or school need to be highly competent at writing for an academic audience. The "publish or perish" pressure is alive and well for academic advancement, publications, and external grant funding. Yet few faculty, particularly in the health professions and sciences, receive formal training on the craft of writing. Faculty developers have offered a variety of programs designed to enhance the writing skills of faculty using a various formats and with varying success. Since 2006, the Indiana University School of Medicine's (IUSM) Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development has offered an in-depth two-day workshop plus individual tutorials designed to enhance faculty academic writing skills. This paper presents the results of an evaluation of faculty perceptions of the impact of their participation in this program. (Contains 7 tables.)
