-Our mentorship families are an excellent way to form bonds across all parts of the program. A good mix of work, fun and social time, family meetings take place wherever the group decides- houses, restaurants, bowling alleys, sport events or rolling bars.
-A mentorship family is generally 2 core faculty, 2 non-core faculty and 2 residents from each class.
-Our families meet periodically to discuss issues and develop Individual Learning Plans (ILPs). ILPs add an element of rigor to the mentorship process to ensure time is spent where the residents want help the most. Whether it’s becoming a better speaker or improving time management, the family listens, strategizes and monitors each residents progress towards their goals.
-Additional 1:1 mentorships are created based on interest, need and for those preparing for subspeciality training.
