Mt. Zion Faculty Mentoring Program

The DGIM faculty development and faculty mentoring programs consist of several inter-related programs and activities that aim to enhance the careers and professional development of DGIM faculty.

Career Mentoring Program

Mentoring is vitally important for faculty at all levels. Junior faculty, in particular, benefit from "Career Mentoring". All DGIM faculty members who have not yet attained Associate status are paired with a DGIM faculty mentor for ongoing career guidance and mentoring. All junior faculty are expected to meet with their career mentor at least twice per year to discuss issues such as advancement and promotion, career guidance, setting appropriate professional and personal goals, and to help facilitate scholarly activities. A synopsis of the expectations of mentors and mentees is listed below:
