Faculty Mentorship Program

The goal of the Faculty Mentorship Program is to foster successful academic career development of the faculty in the Department of Internal Medicine. The program was instituted to provide guidance and feedback on the progress and performance of the ladder track junior faculty. Senior faculty mentors are selected as mentors to help junior faculty set appropriate goals for their research, clinical, and educational programs.

For the 2022-2023 academic year, the program has been expanded to incorporate the Yale School of Medicine Faculty Development Annual Questionnaire (FDAQ). This questionnaire is an initiative from the Office of the Dean to promote mentorship for, and feedback to, the faculty from the department and section leadership. Its components are largely aligned with the department mentoring report that we have used in the past, while it also contains a more extended questionnaire about career development.

Advancement of Clinician-Educator Scholarship (ACES) Program

The Advancement of Clinician-Educator Scholarship (ACES) Program is a year-long faculty development program is aimed to provide clinician-educators with the knowledge and skills to complete scholarly work through a dedicated curriculum and personalized mentoring. Clinician-educators in their first five years on faculty in the Department of Internal Medicine who are interested in developing scholarship and dedicated to attend a year-long program are encouraged to apply.

Accepted scholars will attend seminar/interactive group sessions on Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. following Department of Internal Medicine Grand Rounds. Additional time to carry out individual scholarship and to participate in dedicated mentoring will need to be provided by the applicant’s section with a total of 0.2 FTE needed to participate.
