Departmental Mentoring Programs

Many departments have established formal mentoring programs. Talk to your chair or division chief about obtaining mentoring within your department. Your Annual Performance Review (APR) meeting with your chair or chief is an excellent opportunity to start this discussion.

You might first complete the Individual Opportunity Plan (IOP) to define your career direction, or Step 1 of the Find a Mentor process to define your mentoring needs.
