Mentoring among faculty at IUSM is a crucial element in sustaining a vital faculty community, promoting faculty development, and increasing faculty retention. The creation of two annual “Excellence in Faculty Mentoring” awards at IUSM underscores the commitment to endorse mentoring within our faculty. The purpose is to recognize the outstanding mentoring efforts of one clinical and one basic science faculty member each year who actively mentor other faculty members and learners. These prestigious awards acknowledge the time sacrifice and dedication faculty mentors devote to foster the career development and academic success of colleagues and learners in the areas of research, education, service and clinical practice. These awards allow the school of medicine to honor and celebrate the valuable efforts of faculty mentors who embody the spirit of mentoring.
Two recipients per year will be selected: one clinical faculty and one basic science faculty.
Each award recipient will be honored with a monetary award and enter the “Society of Faculty Mentors.” All finalists will be highlighted on the “Mentoring Spotlight” page of the OFAPD website.
The awards are designed to honor faculty mentors in the school of medicine community who exemplify truly extraordinary selflessness as they support and contribute to the career development and advancement of other faculty members and learners (students, residents, fellows, and postdocs). Faculty mentors selected for this award must demonstrate a continued commitment to fostering the intellectual, creative, scholarly, and professional development of their mentees. Candidates are assessed on their extent, quality, and effectiveness in mentoring.
Individual faculty mentoring awards will be given to two faculty members (one clinical and one basic scientist) who consistently demonstrate five or more of the following:
Any full or part-time faculty member in the School of Medicine is eligible for nomination for one of the two faculty mentoring awards. Any faculty member or learner (student, resident, fellow, or postdoc) can submit a nomination. In most cases an individual faculty or learner would nominate their current or previous mentor; however, fellow faulty members who admire the mentoring efforts of their colleagues may drive the nomination process and solicit letters from the candidate’s mentees. An award may be conferred only once to a faculty mentor, however, a nomination will remain active for a three (3) year period. Candidates will be permitted to update their nomination materials but are not required to do so. While not required, it is recommended that candidates update their nomination materials.
There will be an open call for nominations in INScope, electronic list serves, and via the OFAPD website. Nominations should be submitted to the Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development (OFAPD) by mail or email at email@example.com.
The nomination packet must include:
Nominations will be reviewed and selected by the Mentoring Sub-Committee of the Faculty Development Coordinating Committee members.
Nominations are due by June 1, 2018
Award winners will be announced at the 2018 Fall Faculty Meeting
