Department members took part in a pilot Mentorship Program in 2019. That pilot is now at an end and was very successful. As a result we opened up the program province wide in 2020.
The UBC OBGYN Faculty Mentoring Program will be a department wide initiative. The goal for the initiative is to build a mentorship program that will accommodate the needs of all faculty members in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology around the province.
The intentions of the program are to:
- Support the career goals of UBC OBGYN faculty in the areas of administration, clinical, teaching and research.
- Enhance overall engagement within the UBC Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
This structured peer mentoring program is designed to support and assist faculty navigate through departmental roles by pairing senior faculty (mentors) with other faculty (mentees) in the areas of teaching, clinical, administration and research. Mentors and mentees will engage in learner driven professional development sessions over the 12-month duration of the program. Participants in this program will also have the opportunity to form practical and meaningful professional relationships.
We would like to acknowledge the work done by the UBC Continuing Professional Development on their mentorship program and thank them for providing us with some tools to use to make our program a success.
We also want to acknowledge and provide our thanks to the mentors and mentees who took part in the pilot.
