Coaching and Mentorship

Coaching done well may be the most effective intervention designed for human performanceAtul Gawande

Our program has one of best resident assessment systems in the country that will give you the feedback you need improve.

A core education faculty member will serve as your coach along the way to help you become a Master Adaptive Learner.

During residency training you will not encounter every possible scenario you might experience in practice. When presented with novel challenges you will need to know how to adapt, create, and learn.

Master Adaptive Learners are driven by curiosity, motivation, mindset and resilience, and use deep reflection and modern learning strategies to develop adaptive expertise in practice.

In the future, how you think will be more important that what you know.

Your coach will not solve your problems for you. But, they will help you build reflection, self-directed learning, and deliberate practice into your daily routine.

Mentorship

In addition to your coach, we have multiple specific mentorship opportunities to meet your needs.

Your Academic Half Day learning community mentor serves as a longitudinal teacher and mentor during your PGY-1 year.

We will help you find career and research mentorship along the way.

And, if you join a Learning Pathway you will also receive dedicated mentorship for the duration of residency.

The Department of Medicine now has more than 300 faculty members, any one of which could serve as an excellent mentor.

You will develop meaningful relationships with these faculty members throughout your training to help you achieve your goals, while also meeting with the program director and associate program directors regularly to make sure you are on the right path.
