Faculty Mentorship Program

The goal of this program is to foster successful academic career development of the faculty in the department. The program was instituted to provide guidance and feedback on the progress and performance of the ladder track junior faculty. Senior faculty mentors help junior faculty to set appropriate goals for their research, clinical and educational programs. The mentoring program for academic year 2021-2022 includes:


  • Meetings with a designated senior faculty mentor.
  • Section-wide review of junior faculty progress by senior faculty.
  • Review of mentoring reports by section chief or senior faculty designee (such as the section clinical or research chief).


  • Mentoring committee if requested by the junior faculty person, mentor, or section chief. This committee would consist of 2-3 senior faculty, from within or outside the section, to provide additional guidance. If convened, it would meet prior to the annual meetings of the section’s senior faculty and section chief.
  • Meeting with a member of the Department Appointments & Promotions Committee, if requested by the junior faculty, mentor, or section chief. These meetings should preferably take place two years prior to the anticipated date of application for promotion.
