Realize exceptional benefits through mentoring

Improve promotion and retention, faculty satisfaction and development, grant attainment, research publications, and engagement.

Could Your Institution Benefit from a Better Mentoring Program?

Mentoring programs are an important part of professional development and can help both institution and faculty. However, they don’t always work in practice as well as they do conceptually. Also, many universities are unable to assess their mentoring program’s effectiveness.

AAL helps institutions build effective mentoring programs that:

    • Improve job performance, satisfaction, and retention
    • Address knowledge and skill gaps
    • Equip employees to achieve higher levels of well-being
    • Foster an understanding of best practices within your organization
    • Promote interprofessional collaboration
    • Support personal and professional development for both mentors and mentees

How We Do It

Developing an effective mentoring program requires thoughtful planning and sustained attention to ensure that faculty buy into the program and find it valuable. AAL will lead you through the essential steps in developing a mentoring program:

One

Establish support of the leadership.

Two

Undertake a needs assessment of faculty.

Three

Administer personal assessments to all faculty to facilitate the matching of mentees and mentors.

Four

Attain a clear consensus on program goals, the structure of the program, training for faculty, an evaluation plan, and the steps to sustain the customized mentoring program.

Five

Train faculty to help mentors take a coaching stance in this role and to assist mentees in making optimal use of their mentoring experience.

Six

Evaluate the outcomes of the mentoring program, share these with faculty, and adjust the program based on mentee and mentor feedback.

Seven

Make the program sustainable by incorporating mentoring into existing systems, train leadership to continue modeling coaching behavior and provide booster sessions for faculty.

Success Stories

“I've taken quite a few leadership courses and seminars; none come close to the material involved and coordination AAL. Sprinkle a little genuine interest in seeing us succeed and well intentions and you have the best leadership mentors PERIOD.”

Dr. Khaled Hussein

BronxCare Health System

“The program was very valuable in the way that it gave us some real tools, some real opportunities and ways to evaluate ourselves and our own approaches to leadership and then gave us an opportunity of how to apply that to interprofessional education. I think that was the best … the applicability of the tools that were provided to us and how we can utilize those were just amazing. It was very valuable and an opportunity to evaluate yourself with the tools that they provided to give an introspective look into your own leadership style and what other people thought of your leadership, and that was very powerful.”

Dr. Kevin Brueilly

Wingate University Levine College of Health Sciences

“I think the program was excellent. There were many excellent sessions. They were very stimulating. They kept us moving, very thought provoking. I thought the program overall was well designed, and as I said very thought provoking. For the inaugural program, it was well put together. You could see the passion in the instructors, who were very well versed in the topics that they talked about. I’m really pleased to be a part of this, and as a social worker, I really got a great sense of how interprofessional education can be very instrumental in terms of social workers working in healthcare settings. I think this is the wave of the future, and this program will gain traction in the future. I’m just glad to be a part of it.”
