Welcome to our Mentoring Resources

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Mentoring Curriculum &  Toolkit was developed to help mentors and mentees in academic medical settings navigate the challenges of mentoring relationships, build effective “developmental networks” and maximize the use of mentoring in career development. It consists of a collection of learning pearls, cases, readings, resources and tools to help both mentors and mentees develop productive mentoring relationships.

This resource was developed collaboratively by facilitators and participants in the BWH Faculty Mentoring Leadership Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, 2009-2016. We encourage you to use individuals sessions or all sessions as a longitudinal course.  Please request permission for use on the link below, as it is helpful for us to know how the material is being used. We also appreciate feedback.
