2014-2015 Meetings: TBA 

2014-2016 Members: TBA 


The Mentoring Interest Group first met on November 3, 2011. We have discussed potential programming to help faculty improve their skills in mentoring students, trainees, and other faculty, clarifying the importance of mentoring in the HMS promotion process, and linking helpful mentors to mentees. 

Given the data from the academy membership survey, it became clear that academy members feel that they themselves need mentoring, and we are focusing our work on a group mentoring programs to serve the needs of Academy members.  From a subsequent survey, we have identified the key needs of: 1. Mentoring for career development in medical education; 2. Mentoring in writing and publication, and 3. Mentoring in medical education research.

We are working on pilot programs for 2013-2014 that we hope will launch a few group mentoring clusters focused on career development, and separate clusters focused on writing and publication, the latter being developed in collaboration with the Writing for Scholarship Interest Group.

We are challenged by the upcoming retirement of co-chair Jonathan Borus (and are in the process of identifying a new co-chair) and by a small group of active interest group members (total of 8 regular attendees including two co-chairs). We would welcome new members interested in the mentoring process.
