Mentoring and advising
Throughout training, residents have access to advisors in the Department of Neurology who match their clinical and/or research interests. Residents typically meet with their advisors at least two times each year. Advisors develop a personal relationship with the resident, provide career guidance, support and planning provide mentorship and advice about career choices, advocate for the resident, facilitate the resident’s professional development, and serve as a resource in personal and professional decision-making.
In their first year, residents begin meeting with Drs. Pomeroy and Rollins as well as the residency program leadership to ensure that they have the breadth of expertise needed to help guide them into a research area. The group helps decide on the need for an additional research advisor and provides advice on how to get started with a project as well as on planning for fellowships and faculty positions. Annual academic retreats provide further opportunities for mentorship and career development. In the second and third years, residents receive continued guidance on their research progress.
