Mentorship in Academic Medicine Interest Group

Mentorship plays an essential role in ensuring success in academic medicine regardless of the level of training. Most medical schools assign mentors to medical students to ensure that they achieve and complete their medical school requirements. Similarly, residents and fellows have mentors to guide them through their training and to provide advice on career choices or research projects. Junior faculty and faculty of all levels also benefit from mentors throughout their academic career. 

The Mentorship in Academic Medicine Interest Group will focus on various aspects of mentorship such as guidelines to mentor clinician educators and researcher, evaluation and assess of mentors, peer mentorship and distant mentoring programs. One of the objectives of the Interest Group is to develop a repository of resources, guidelines or toolkits which can be disseminated or made available on websites to improve mentoring.
