The University of Wisconsin Department of Medicine faculty development program leverages the science of effective mentoring to develop talent in our department. We strive to create an inclusive work environment with equitable access to professional development. To promote faculty success and well-being, we will:
- Create a culture that prioritizes, values, and rewards mentoring excellence
- Empower all faculty with an individual development plan, culturally aware mentoring resources, and formal mentor and mentee training experiences
- Ensure effective promotion oversight committees and productive mentoring relationships
- Cultivate professional opportunities that enhance personal and professional satisfaction throughout their career
We demonstrate success by recruiting and retaining outstanding faculty from diverse backgrounds who reflect the identities of the patients for whom we deliver care, and whose professional activities promote the UW School of Medicine and Public Health’s missions of excellence in clinical and public health, research, education, and leadership.
We will achieve national recognition of our mentorship culture, which will further improve faculty well-being and engagement.
