Getting Started

The Department of Pediatrics Office of Faculty Development would like to assist those at the Instructor or Assistant Professor rank in obtaining mentoring to achieve your goals as a faculty member. We can provide support in arranging regular meetings of your mentorship committee. We recommend that these committees meet at least twice a year.

Mentor Selection

  • Contact Phil Abraham or Katherine Rivera-Spoljaricto initiate the mentor process and if needed, assist with mentor selection
  • Scheduling Meetings: Submit 6 dates to OFD program coordinator, Megan Shaffer, so mentors can be polled for mutually agreeable date.
  • Meetings will be held in SLCH 6100J Office of Faculty Development Office unless otherwise indicated or upon request.


  • Email as soon as possible, your CEP to all mentors prior to your meeting
  • Print and bring template to help guide meeting Mentor Meeting Template
  • Be prepared to decide on a date and time of your next meeting
  • Review Info for mentees and mentors on this website.


  • Please complete the mentor meeting evaluation which is primarily to assess the effectiveness of our mentor program, not the individuals participating
