Even teachers need additional training and borrowed wisdom. At the University, you can find such resources all in one place. The Rush Educational Mentoring Program was established to help educators at Rush University and John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County build their teaching portfolio.

The Office of Faculty Affairs and Mentoring Programs is offering a 3 day Teaching Excellence Boot Camp. Faculty members from both Rush University and John H. Stroger Hospital are all welcomed to participate. All participants who complete this boot camp will receive a certificate. For more information, please feel free to contact us at mentoringprograms@rush.edu.
