Faculty mentoring program named for Geoffrey Fleming
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine's Academy for Excellence in Education is developing a mentoring program for scientist educators, clinician educators and clinical practice faculty that will provide support and guidance to access and acquire the resources and skills necessary for successful careers as educators. Named the Geoffrey Fleming Mentoring Program, it will be implemented in spring 2021.
The Academy for Excellence in Education board has named the program in honor of Geoffrey Fleming, MD, professor of Pediatrics and Critical Care Medicine. Fleming helped implement a similar faculty peer mentoring program within the Department of Pediatrics more than 10 years ago — the Hazinski Society for Junior Faculty Development, which continues today.
