Peer Coaching

The Department of Medicine is committed to the career development and growth of our faculty. The goal of this program is to provide faculty with access to peer coaches for academic and personal development. 

Peer coaches undergo training to become experts in helping guide faculty through important professional milestones such as  career transitions, leadership development, promotions, work life integration and burnout.

How is Coaching Different from Mentoring?

Coaching and mentoring share some similarities, but their goals are very different. 

Mentoring relationships are typically long-term, one-on-one relationships where the mentor has skill set or expertise and they help the mentee develop those skills sets over time. For more information on campus mentoring, please visit the NUCATS Mentoring Consultation Services website.

Coaching is usually a short-term relationship where the goal is to determine the step toward desired professional or personal outcomes.
