The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Mentoring Toolkit & Curriculum was developed to help mentors and mentees in academic medical settings navigate the challenges of mentoring relationships, build effective “developmental networks,” and maximize the use of mentoring in career development.

It consists of a collection of cases, readings and “pearls” on different mentoring topics, followed by resources for mentor/mentee career development and for groups interested in creating mentor development programs.

The Center for Faculty Development & Diversity is one of many BWH resources that support and champion mentoring for all faculty and trainees. Our faculty have also published a variety of publications on mentoring.

The Toolkit will be continuously updated to better reflect the needs of our physicians and scientists and to provide the most current resources available.

We encourage feedback and/or suggestions to develop the Toolkit further. Please click here to take a very short survey about your usage and impressions of the BWH Mentoring Toolkit, or to request permissions. You may also contact us at
