Cultivating mentoring relationships is crucial to career growth and professional fulfillment. The Office of Faculty Development (OFD) strives to maintain a culture that actively encourages mentorship and continuously enhances mentor and mentee skills for all faculty. We create and sponsor programs to encourage high-quality, equity-focused mentoring relationships. Working closely with the Office for Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of Gender Equity in Science and Medicine we review, collate, and share evidence-based strategies to support diverse, underrepresented, and women faculty.
At Icahn Mount Sinai, we provide both mentors and mentees with tools and strategies to create and sustain thriving mentoring relationships throughout their career stages. This includes the following online tools:
- Mentoring Leaders
Sections that include role descriptions and a list of these leaders by department
- Mentorship Workshops and Events
