In 2011, the Office of Academic Development & Enrichment (OADE) at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) launched a major junior faculty mentoring initiative. Departments produced mentoring program policies and designated “Mentoring Leaders” to serve as liaisons to junior faculty. We strongly encourage you to explore the materials below, which include advice on building mentoring committees, tips on initiating mentor relationships, creating a personal development plan, abiding by the required CV format, and track-specific requirements for promotion.
We are committed to promoting your career and helping you find your way in the Mount Sinai Health System. Please see our contact information to the right if you would like to see specific topics addressed in future OADE events and materials.
"Your mentors will enlarge your dreams and nurture your passions. They will guide you: To innovate; to push the envelope; to not be bound by tradition, when tradition is an obstacle; to make discoveries, once thought impossible, that will change the face of medicine. To learn the art and science of becoming a truly great physician or scientist; to commit to addressing the needs of those who most need our care in our local community and around the world." -- Dean Charney
