Mentoring

The guiding vision of our Mentoring Subcommittee is to further the Department of Medicine’s mission to create, sustain, and enhance an academic environment that fosters excellent mentoring for all faculty. Recognizing the importance of mentoring in helping faculty reach their career goals and attain career satisfaction, we aim to provide resources that will result in more productive and rewarding mentoring relationships. 

The program has the following goals:
  • To facilitate the development of a mentoring relationship for early career faculty
  • To prepare faculty mentors for the mentorship role
  • To develop web-based resources for mentors and mentees
  • To recognize and reward mentoring
