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 Program is offering a 3 day Teaching Excellence Bootcamp. For more information, please feel free to contact us at mentoringprograms@rush.edu.
