Mentoring Program

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University recognizes the importance of the mentoring relationship to foster professional development and provide skill-building opportunities for mentees through one-on-one mentoring. Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of mentorship for professional development in academic medicine (Kashiwagi, Varkey, & Cook, 2013). Psychiatry residents with mentors have reported greater career satisfaction, more networking opportunities, enhanced psychosocial support, and improved skills in research compared to those without mentors (Sambunjak, Straus, & Marušić, 2006). Many individuals may find a mentor naturally; however a substantial number do not. Our mentoring program was designed to fill that gap and provide mentees with the opportunity to choose a mentor that aligns with their personal interests. The program is available to all members of the department.

If you are interested in participating in the program as a mentee, please review the faculty bios for potential mentors and contact Dr. Randi McCabe at rmccabe@stjoes.ca or Dr. Jennifer Ford at jennifer.ford@medportal.ca.

If you are a faculty member interested in being a mentor in the program, please contact Dr. Randi McCabe at rmccabe@stjoes.ca or Dr. Jennifer Ford at jennifer.ford@medportal.ca.
