The final meeting of the 2022-23 Early-Career Faculty Mentoring Program was held Thursday, May 11. This year 14 junior faculty and mentor dyads participated in the program.
The Early-Career Faculty Mentoring Program was created by the School of Medicine’s Office of Faculty Affairs & Development in 2020 to support junior faculty and their mentors in building meaningful mentoring relationships. The program complements and builds upon the work being done by department chairs and division chiefs to support the career development and advancement of junior faculty. The program seeks to connect junior faculty and mentors in effective, goal-driven relationships; facilitate the exploration of early career professional opportunities and mentoring networks; identify potential areas for early career focus and engagement with scholarly work/scholarship; support junior faculty’s preparation for a meaningful first annual review; and support junior faculty’s preparation for promotion and tenure processes and mentorship next steps.
Over the spring and summer, the Office of Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development will work closely with departments to invite new or incoming School of Medicine junior faculty and their mentors to participate in the 2023-2024 Early-Career Faculty Mentoring Program. Meetings are once monthly, October through May.
More details about the program and schedule may be found on the Faculty Affairs and Development website.
