Faculty Mentorship Program

Queen's Faculty Development

The interprofessional Faculty Mentorship Program connects faculty members with mentors from across Queen's Faculty of Health Sciences.  The Mentorship Program's purpose is to serve as a reciprocal process for sharing experiences and to foster a trusting environment for career guidance and psychosocial support.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • Cultivate personal and professional growth
  • Facilitate reflective thinking
  • Foster a collegial and trusting environment


The Mentorship Program includes a formal structure with defined learning objectives.  Engaged participation in the program will advance the educational development of both Mentees and Mentors and will support an interprofessional learning atmosphere.


After 34 years as a community family physician in Thornhill Ontario, I was delighted to have the opportunity to be a mentee in the Inter-professional Mentorship Program. This experience has helped me adjust to a new professional role here at Queens. Having never worked in a University setting during my career I found the guidance I received from my mentor invaluable. I felt I was in a safe, nonjudgmental environment where I could ask questions that would enable me to better fulfill my responsibilities. Participating in this program has helped me to feel a valued member of the Queen’s community. I feel very fortunate and appreciative that I was given this opportunity.
