Rush Mentoring Programs

Rush mentoring programs
As humans, we build upon what others have already learned. That makes mentoring critical to success in any professional track, including health care. Rush University makes mentoring a cornerstone of its professional development efforts, allowing early-career faculty to learn from those who preceded them and giving experienced faculty the opportunity to keep their wisdom alive, vibrant and useful by bettering patient lives and professional careers.

Rush University has four unique mentoring programs open to all faculty members affiliated with Rush University and John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. Our programs currently host many seminars and workshops for researchers, educators and postdoctoral medical professionals.
