This course was designed because UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has a robust Pediatric APP Fellowship program. In order for this program to be successful it requires both physicians and APPs to mentor the APP fellows. We also have ~20 APP fellows enrolled in the Pediatric APP fellowship program at any given time. Proper training on effective methods of mentoring is essential for our Pediatric APP fellowship program to be successful. It is also essential that the APP fellows have appropriate expectation of their mentor and know how to be a good mentee.
After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
- Discuss the strengths and challenges of various mentoring models.
- Identify “best practices” regarding how to establish and maintain effective mentorship relationships.
- Develop strategies to effectively mentor across differences including gender, race, and generation.
