Find a Mentor

As explained under our Faculty Development and Mentoring Overview section:

Once on board, each new surgery faculty will be assigned an initial PRIMARY mentor within the department as well as 2 or more secondary mentors that may be from the Department of Surgery or from other Departments if their expertise would be appropriate as a mentor. If a surgery faculty member has research interests outside the department, a research mentor in that field would also be assigned. Additionally if a new faculty member is interested in developing a clinical service/area of expertise not currently available in the hospital or department, an opportunity to meet with the appropriate departmental, SOM and KU-Hospital people to assist in that development will be provided.

To begin the process of mentor assignment, we ask junior faculty members to complete the following form:

To begin the process for becoming a mentor for the first time, we ask senior faculty members to complete the following form:

Each surgery faculty member will have meetings with their mentoring committee at least twice a year to address concerns and developmental milestones prior to annual chair-review. Each of these meetings will be documented for the mentee's file using a One Page Sample Form.
