Abstract

Mentoring is an essential part of a resident's career development. It plays an important role in nurturing, and sustaining success along the career path of a young physician. Mentoring is a long-term goal that is development-driven rather than performance-driven. Although specific learning goals may be used as a basis, the focus of mentoring may also include self-confidence, self-perception, and work-life balance. A number of residency programs have implemented mentoring programs in their institutions. This article discusses the importance of mentoring, illustrates “do's and don'ts” for mentees and demonstrates how to choose the ideal mentor. Finally, a “mentoring quiz” is designed to evaluate your mentoring relationship.
