Mentoring – developing insight to turn hindsight into foresight

About Mentoring Circles

As a part of our plan to develop talent, DIO sponsors a series of Mentoring Circles in collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs.  The objective of Mentoring Circles is to provide a diverse group of medical students and residents exposure to faculty in a team-based setting that allows for informal dialog, mentoring, and learning across the circle. The program provides participants with enhanced professional growth, varied perspectives through peer and faculty mentoring, and an expanded network of colleagues.
