The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry is committed to the success of our faculty, and accordingly has instituted a number of processes and supports to assist in career development.

These include the following:

  • clear descriptions of workload and performance expectations at the time of hiring and review
  • annual performance review and goal-setting 
  • leadership training opportunities for Clinical Academics, jointly with the London teaching hospitals as part of the Talent Management program and;
  • now a Mentorship process to assist in effective career development

The key elements of the Mentoring process include:

  • the offer of the mentoring process in the letter of offer
  • the establishment of the Mentoring Committee by the Chair and the faculty member
  • the facilitation of the first meeting by the Chair (or delegate)
  • the setting of all future meetings and the agendas by the faculty member
  • on-going support and direction provided by the committee
