Defining Mentorship and Preceptorship During Training

Mentorship – Trainees are assigned to a mentor who will guide them through the 3 years of residency and their overall career goals

  • Provisional Mentor (PM) – Mentor assigned for first 3-6 months of training (he/she may become permanent mentor)
  • Established Training Mentor (ETM): Assigned for remainder of training

Preceptorship – Depending on the nature of the residents’ project and scholarly work, a preceptor will be assigned to ensure completion of the goals and establishment of a career “niche”.
