Carol Bates, MD and Amy Weinstein, MD
Goals and Achievements:
Following a needs assessment of HMS faculty, the interest group piloted a peer mentoring program. In collaboration with the Scholarship in Medicine Interest Group, the mentors focused on assisting individual faculty with writing projects and with broadening their concept of education scholarship. In addition, we established several mentorship groups focused upon career mentoring. Groups were composed of volunteer expert faculty mentors and 3-5 mentees; by including peers in the mentoring group, this approach enabled us to broaden our reach to include more faculty members and took advantage of the benefits of peer instruction/interactions. We are in the process of evaluating the outcomes and experiences in these groups, which will help us to determine how we will proceed in the next academic year. We hope to hold a symposium to address the issue of career mentorship in AY 2014-2015.
At the end of AY 14, we welcomed Dr. Amy Weinstein into the role of co-chair of the group for AY 15
