Our mentorship program for junior and mid-level faculty provides a regular and effective means of monitoring individual career plans with encouragement, suggestions and facilitation toward successful outcomes. Additionally, we want to provide junior and mid-level faculty, as well as residents and medical students, with visible and interactive role models of what academic surgery success looks like in the tenure and clinical tracks.
We realize that career goals are highly individualized and continually in the process of re-adjustment. Our Faculty Development Advisory Committee meets monthly to review individual faculty development in the context of overall departmental strategies. Members also meet individually with faculty to assist them in achieving career development goals in clinical care, research, education, administration and/or community outreach.
Our Surgical Education Journal Club helps our faculty members, residents and fellows stay up to date with the latest in surgical education theories and practices. And our Faculty Advancement, Mentoring and Engagement (FAME) is a valuable online learning community with many tools and resources.
