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.

I have gained a new friend and colleague. I suspect I have learned at least as much from my mentee as they have from me. I envisage our relationship continuing to blossom and yield fruit over many years."

I enjoyed meeting with someone outside of my department to hear an objective perspective on the issues and challenges I discussed with them. I also appreciated
learning how things work in other departments, as my mentor was able to share practice patterns and approaches that I could adopt myself."
