The Department of Medicine takes faculty mentoring very seriously. It is a critical aspect of professional development of faculty in all missions of academic medicine.
Formal establishment of a Mentor relationship is required for newly appointed Assistant Professors within three months of their appointment, and ongoing mentoring activity is required for all Assistant Professors. Establishing a mentor is strongly encouraged for all other junior faculty (Instructors and Sr. Instructors), but not required.
