Faculty mentoring is a critical component to maintaining an adequate pool of qualified faculty and is a priority issue of both the Academy and AACP. This session will emphasize the transition of faculty from their initial years in academics, up to where they move from being mentees to being a mentor. We will have three different perspectives: a dean, a department chair and a senior faculty member who directs a school of pharmacy-based mentoring program. A case study will be used to highlight the different strategies that may be used.
