The Faculty & Resident Launch Program is a multifaceted, 3-year program that creates an intentional, team-based approach to mentorship and development of early-career faculty members and residents. The program is open to all faculty members and residents within the Department on each track, and is designed with flexible elements to tailor the program toward an individual’s professional and personal needs.
Mentorship occurs through teams that include faculty members within the Department of Surgery, as well as mentors from other disciplines with unique expertise in key areas of faculty growth. Teams will support and guide faculty members through the first few years of practice and residents during their academic development time, focusing on aspects of performance that are critical for success and well-being: clinical care, academics, education, and leadership.
Boost Teams is an initiative within the Faculty & Resident Launch Program for newly promoted Associate Professors in the department. We developed this program based on feedback from faculty members who expressed the need for support once they transitioned from Assistant to Associate Professor.
Each participant in this program will be assigned a Boost Team consisting of 4-6 members with relevant knowledge and experience who will assist in the following areas:
- Help you clarify your phenotype
- Discuss and identify long term goals
- Map your career trajectory, with an eye towards development needs for reaching your long-term goals
- Perform an overall mid-career assessment
Newly appointed Associate Professors (3 or fewer years in rank) are eligible to apply for this program. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Rivard at [email protected]
