Faculty Mentoring Program
The Office of Faculty Affairs & Development initiated a comprehensive faculty mentoring program - the Institutional Faculty Mentoring Program (IFMP) - which systematically pairs carefully selected and trained senior faculty mentors with junior and early mid-career faculty members for a year-long period to provide the latter with advice, coaching, and feedback designed to enhance their academic productivity and skills, and prepare them for promotion and/or tenure.
This program was partially supported by our institutional HRSA-funded Hispanic Center of Excellence (2009-2012). While the IFMP is opened to all junior and early mid-career faculty, it is particularly intended to promote the academic success of Hispanic and other underrepresented minority faculty members, and women in academic medicine.
