Mentoring & Faculty Development
NYU School of Medicine’s Office of Mentoring and Faculty Development ensures that junior and midcareer faculty have the support, information, and resources they need for career development. We cultivate growth opportunities by providing structure, guidance, and tools to mentors, mentees, and mentoring leadership. Thus, we enhance our ability to recruit and retain faculty, promote faculty engagement and professional satisfaction, and ensure the vitality of our institution.
Mentoring provides opportunities to both junior faculty and experienced faculty. As committed senior advisors and trusted guides, mentors provide counsel that helps junior faculty to further their personal and professional goals.
A conviction that mentoring strengthens the faculty and advances the mission of the department and institution offers strong incentive to mentors. Plus, many mentors derive enormous gratification from the success of their mentees. By imparting their professional ideals, ethics, and values, mentors can influence subsequent generations of doctors and researchers—and the future of their fields.
Our leadership provides guidance to mentors, mentees, and the mentoring champions who oversee the programs on the department level.
