Faculty Mentoring

Mentor committees provide a structure and process to foster the academic career development and success of faculty. The Department of Pediatrics  requires  every assistant professor to have a mentor committee.

As senior faculty continue to navigate their academic careers, they may find ongoing mentor committee guidance and support useful. 

Mentor committees support faculty in all academic pathways by: 

  • Lending  personalized guidance and counsel  in developing a fulfilling career in the Department of Pediatrics. 
  • Helping  plan for promotion. 

Mentor Committee Meetings 

New faculty members should set up and meet with their mentor committees within the  first 6 months  of appointment. 

Committees should  meet as a group  at least  yearly. Faculty may hold more frequent meetings if needed or desired, such as when the mentee nears promotion. 

Faculty should  attach a completed  Mentor Committee Summary Form to their annual faculty performance evaluation.
