Faculty Mentoring Program

  • The UI College of Medicine Mentoring Program is intended to be a useful way to help faculty members excel in their academic environment. Assistance from a well-respected mentor can be an invaluable supplement to the guidance and assistance that a department chair provides during the early years of a faculty member’s career. The program’s success will depend on the faculty mentees, their mentors, the facilitators, and the department chairs all taking an active role in the acclimation process.
  • Online resources are available further describing this program as well as a list of departmental mentoring facilitators.
