Announcing A New Departmental Faculty Mentorship Program

The goal of this very experienced team will be to provide mentorship, broadly defined, to all junior faculty members, defined as assistant professors or instructors in our department. Members of the team will contact junior faculty individually and assess your needs in order to provide support and mentorship tailored to individ-ual faculty goals and career objectives. This mechanism will supplement, and not replace, existing mentorship relationships within laboratories, clinical and educational programs. It will however provide a structure and mechanism that will be inclusive, and a bit more formal and consistent, in a manner that many faculty will find useful.
