Welcome to the Office of Academic Enhancement & Mentoring (OAEM) at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. OAEM sponsors initiatives that simultaneously foster career development of individual faculty and provide a mechanism to enhance the quality of the mentorship they receive.
We are here to help you succeed in your career at Icahn School of Medicine and connect you to a broad range of services and resources that will support your success. OAEM sponsors development seminars and workshops that address topics critical to career development at Icahn School of Medicine.
Past events have included:
- Scientific writing
- Responsible conduct in research
- Successful strategies for submitting grants
- Managing dynamic research laboratories
- The promotion process
- Effective teaching and mentorship
We host monthly one-on-one sessions where you can come and ask questions in an intimate setting. In addition, we coordinate receptions to introduce new faculty to Icahn School of Medicine infrastructure groups that are here to support academic achievements.
To enhance mentoring of both faculty and trainees, many OAEM events are conducted in conjunction with our OAEM Partners, i.e., other groups within Icahn School of Medicine that are also committed to promoting mentorship of junior faculty and trainees: Center for Multicultural Affairs, Institute for Medical Education, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs and Office for Women's Careers.
We encourage you to reach out to us with questions and concerns that you have regarding your career at Icahn School of Medicine. Our door is always open. We are here to help.
