Program Award for Culture of Excellence in Mentoring
Harvard Medical School has established this new mentoring award to recognize the efforts of a department, division, office or program to foster innovation and sustainability in mentoring while building a culture of mentoring. This new award would provide an opportunity to learn from successful formal mentoring programs and allow others in the community to adopt model programs. This award is not intended to recognize individuals.
