All faculty at the assistant and associate level should have a mentoring group (2-3 faculty) assigned to them soon after they begin their faculty appointment.
- The mentoring group should be mutually agreed upon between the faculty member, the Department Chair and the mentors.
- Mentors can include faculty members from outside of the college of pharmacy based on the faculty members interest and expertise and mentoring needs.
Mentoring is a required and key element of all UF Health Science Center (HSC) academic and professional educational programs and faculty career development plans. Each faculty member should have an individual faculty development plan with stated specific objectives that will be monitored and assessed for continued appropriateness at each evaluation time point.
The UF HSC recognizes, coordinate and consolidates mentor development programs across HSC Colleges and administration (e.g. Mentor Academy).
