The program is comprised of 10 monthly, 4 hour workshops, one Friday per month 8-12pm occurring October 2021-July 2022. Peer Group Mentoring (PGM) was designed as an alternative to traditional mentoring, in which a group of faculty of equal experience mentor each other. PGM has been found to allow for mutual feedback on career planning and success. Participants in PGM have the ability to work together to clarify their own career goals and priorities, as well as enhance their career vitality. Mentors Matter is modeled around PGM. It provides faculty with the opportunity to improve their mentorship skills as well as enhance their own professional development towards academic promotion with the hopes that after completion of the program they will champion mentorship opportunities back in their respective departments.
In support of improving patient care, Baystate Health is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team.
