Faculty Mentoring Leadership Program

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Faculty Mentoring Leadership Program (FMLP) is a peer learning experience for mid-career and senior faculty physician and scientist mentors to enhance their mentoring effectiveness. The program is geared towards faculty who are currently mentoring other faculty and are eager to foster a collaborative learning environment among BWH faculty mentors. Each of nine monthly sessions is a highly interactive, case-based discussion facilitated by senior faculty mentors who have participated in the program.

The FMLP curriculum is co-developed by the faculty facilitators and the participants to be relevant and timely to the learning community.

A paper describing the rationale, design, implementation, assessment, and ongoing impact of the FMLP was published in the December issue of Academic Medicine.  Click here to access the abstract or full article via PubMed.
