Emergency Medicine Faculty Development and Mentoring at Yale
Academic career development in emergency medicine encompasses intentional, incremental, and sustained change and growth throughout the faculty member’s career. This growth is measureable and manifests in the development of applied and intellectual clinical, teaching, and scholarship capacity that is successful in moving the field of emergency medicine forward in innovation and knowledge.
Mentoring for academic development encompasses the intentional establishment of a dynamic and reciprocal relationship between advanced career and beginning/junior academic emergency medicine physicians. This relationship is both developmentally (personal and professional) and contextually (career and academic culture) relevant and is focused on promoting the career development of both the mentor and the mentee.
