Welcome to JUMP (Junior Faculty Mentoring Program)


Mentorship in academic medicine influences productivity, personal development, and career satisfaction. Mentoring junior faculty is some of the most important work that can be done, and provides benefit to the faculty member, their department, and ultimately, the institution.

 Types of mentoring


The mission of the WFSM Junior Faculty Mentoring Program (JUMP) is to support our junior faculty in their pursuit of a fulfilling and successful career by providing mentoring for professional and personal growth in teaching, research, patient care and leadership.

Personalized Career Development Plan

The Personalized Career Plan reflects the goals and aspirations of the individual faculty member.  Specific goals and objectives are developed and a timeline created to meet the goals.  The mentoring team provides guidance to keep the mentee on track, helps solve problems and suggests solutions to challenges.
