Using the framework known as SBAR, situation, background, assessment and recommendation, Duke AHEAD(Academy for Health Professions Education and Academic Development), an interprofessional academy established in 2014 with over 950 members developed a pilot mentorship process that will be offered to health professions educators. This method of program development is unique as the SBAR framework is often used in clinical decision making and as a quality and safety guide for process improvement and not as often for mentorship programs. In this particular situation(S), a need for a formal mentoring program for health professions educators was identified on a programmatic needs assessment as well as an institutional imperative. While several mentoring programs exist at Duke for researchers, for women, in the office of Diversity Equity and Inclusion as well as in several departments and institutes, a mentoring program addressing the specific needs of health profession educators did not exist. Review of the literature ) demonstrated that effective mentoring programs increase diversity, encourage engagement across different groups and may provide ally ship After discussing with key stakeholders (Duke AHEAD steering committee, programmatic leaders), a Recommendation to pilot a program for 20 early and mid-career faculty as a component of their on- boarding as educators is planned to start in the Fall of 2022. Mentors will be selected from education leaders in Duke AHEAD after self-nomination. Mentees will submit a need or project idea and will be matched by an interprofessional advisory board all matches will be made through an equity and diversity lens, which an interprofessional process will encourage. After assessment(A) of available faculty development resources for the mentors, all mentors will participate in a two hour session on effective mentoring for health professions educators, specifically addressing scholarship, career development, promotion and recognition for their mentee.
