Mentorship in Pediatric Arab Board Postgraduate Residency Training Program: Qatar Experience
Keywords:mentorship, mentors, mentees, education
Mentorship can be defined as developmental assistance offered to a junior employee or trainee by someone more senior and experienced in the field or work place. Mentorship in our pediatric residency training program has existed for years. However, no study has been done to evaluate perspectives, attitudes, and practice of mentorship in this accredited residency program.
To assess faculty and residents views and satisfaction about the mentorship process overall. Accordingly, to try to discern some recommendations in order to improve the practice and fill in the gaps.
The study was conducted using mailed, two mirror-side sets of questionnaires to both residents and faculty staff members involved in the mentoring program in pediatric residency training. Results were then recorded and analyzed manually.
There is a large discrepancy in the views of residents and faculty staff in regard to their perception and practice of mentorship.
Teaching and direct meeting sessions are obviously needed to train both faculty and residents about the appropriate mentorship culture and implementation.
