Peer mentoring is a coaching relationship between faculty members, namely a mentor and a new faculty member. Peer mentoring focuses on interpersonal support, guidance, mutual exchange of ideas, sharing of wisdom, coaching, and role modeling. This program was designed to provide new faculty with the opportunity to learn through formal interactions with their faculty peers. Both partners in the mentoring relationship or community of practice have the opportunity to improve and learn new skills through this relationship.
