Mentor System for Family Medicine Residents
One of our many strengths as a residency program is that we care about each other as people. We respect and value the effort it takes all of us to succeed every day. Excellence in medicine, like anything worth striving for, isn't achieved without effort and hard work. We can, and do, promise to honor your sincerity and commitment, and we'll support you when the going gets tough.
We believe that mentoring is so important to your success that we include it in our vision statement!
- Our residency is an educational community which prepares learners to be competent family physicians ready for excellence in patient care, leadership and lifelong learning. As a community, we work and learn through providing medical care to individuals and families in collaboration with other health care team members while making appropriate use of innovative technologies and models of care delivery. We seek to bring froth the strengths of each resident through a rich and varied set of experiences and ongoing faculty mentoring.
All incoming residents are assigned a faculty mentor to meet with at least quarterly to assess how our residents are balancing the demands of their job and education with a variety of life stressors, including making a career choice and meeting the needs of family and friends. Mentors also review evaluations and help residents set educational and life goals.
The mentor and resident should meet at least four times a year. These meetings will be assigned and occur during the months of February, May, August, and November.
