Abstract

 

Background: Mentorship is defined as the developmental assistance offered to a junior employee or trainee by someone more senior and experienced in the field or work place. Mentorship in our pediatric residency training program has existed for years. However, no auditing or research studies have been done to evaluate perspectives, attitudes and practice of mentorship in this accredited residency program.
Objectives: To assess faculty consultants and residents perspectives and views towards the mentorship process in pediatric residency training program. Accordingly, we are trying to come out with some recommendations in order to improve the program performance.
Methodology: A survey was conducted using two parallel sets of questionnaires to both residents and staff faculty members involved in mentorship in the pediatric residency training program. Results were recorded, plotted into bar graphs and then analyzed. Results: There is big discrepancy in views of residents and faculty staff in regard to their perception and practice towards mentorship. Particular differences have been highlighted in regard to mentorship time, agendas, involvement style and expectations.
Conclusions: Teaching and direct meeting sessions are obviously needed to train both faculty and residents about the appropriate mentorship culture and implementation. Adopting trainee-centered mentorship program might be an ultimate module to be tried
