Mentoring

Resources for Mentors

Mentorship is an important aspect of your career at UW. A successful mentor will support by giving time and space to listen, advocate for, provide feedback, and challenge mentees among other forms of formal or informal academic support.

Resources for Mentees

Resources are available to junior faculty and mentees to establish mentors and grow in their work and professional journey.

CLIME leaders provide mentorship via individual consultation and structured work-in-progress sessions to all members who seek consultations on their scholarship. CLIME leaders mentor in the areas of research design, data collection, instrument development and validation, analysis, and manuscript and grant proposal writing.

Teaching Portfolio

Teaching Portfolio

A teaching portfolio is required for regular faculty (lecturers, assistant professors and associate professors) who are being considered for promotion. The teaching portfolio is a critical document in the promotion review process, particularly at the school and provost levels. The portfolio represents your teaching record and is used to assess the quality and value of teaching and mentoring interactions with students, residents, fellows, practicing physicians, and other professionals.
