Faculty Mentor Training Program (FMTP)

About the Program

The UC San Diego Health Sciences Faculty Mentor Training Program (FMTP) is a formal structured mentorship program designed to support the success of junior faculty, while also improving their sense of satisfaction and engagement with the institution. FMTP will also enhance senior faculty training in effective mentoring, facilitate the adoption of a formalized faculty mentor program within the individual departments/divisions, and cultivate an environment where mentoring excellence is valued. FMTP is a program developed by the Office of Faculty Affairs with support from the Chancellor, the Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences, and the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences is fully committed to the FMTP and mentoring of the junior faculty. Mentors are assigned to all junior faculty. Several of our senior faculty have completed the mentoring training program and many of our junior faculty participate in FMTP activities including the National Center for Leadership in Academic Medicine (NCLAM) junior faculty program and Clinical Research Enhancement though Supplemental Training (CREST).
