Longitudinal Mentoring

Johns Hopkins faculty identifies three Reynolds Geriatrics Faculty Development Scholars each year to receive one to two years of individual coaching and mentorship. These scholars will be selected through a competitive process from among previous mini-fellowship participants or other institutional contacts through the Faculty Development to Advance Geriatric Education (FD~AGE) Program

Criteria will include the quality of their proposed educational project and evidence of institutional support (e.g., a letter from their program director or dean guaranteeing release time) for developing and sustaining the project.

Scholars will be given a partial scholarship for travel, room, and board for one to two visits to Johns Hopkins to meet with their project mentors and to create an immersion experience in teaching techniques in clinical settings (reverse site visit). During the visits, the scholars will make a presentation to a mentorship team for advice and feedback; have one-on-one meetings with select faculty for advice and problem solving; and will meet with a doctoral-level educator to consult on project evaluation, scholarship, and dissemination.

In addition, scholars will attend the Annual Reynolds Grantees meeting in a special track as well as the Annual Current Topics in Geriatrics Course offered at Johns Hopkins each year.

Longitudinal mentoring will include a site visit by consortium faculty to the mentee’s institution either in the form of a consultation or a reverse mini-fellowship in which Donald W. Reynolds Consortium faculty and an Advanced Clinician-Educator fellow visit the mentee’s institution and assist the mentee with on-site faculty training.
