Mentoring Programs

While some divisions, labs, and/or training programs have successfully developed “matched” mentoring programs, whereby mentees are assigned to mentors with common professional interests (research or clinical), Brigham and Women’s Hospital does not have a mechanism in place to formally match mentees and mentors.  Our experience is that the most effective mentoring relationships develop organically and are typically initiated by the mentee seeking technical or developmental mentoring.

Department leaders (chairs, chiefs, faculty development advisors, and clinic and laboratory directors) and members of the Center for Faculty Development & Diversity and its affiliated offices can be resources for mentees in identifying potential mentors and initiating the desired mentoring relationship.

A listing of the BWH Faculty Development Advisors Network, which includes representatives of each department, is available under Tools and Templates.
