Manager Mentor Program

Feinberg's Manager Mentor Program (MMP) is designed to support and develop managers of all levels at Feinberg by leveraging institutional resources and peer-to-peer knowledge. Throughout the academic year, this program provides opportunities for new and aspiring managers to engage with experienced managers. Participants are encouraged to be vocal and proactive about their experience; mentees are expected to drive meetings, set objectives and establish tracking goals with the support of their matched mentors. Mentors must have a willingness to invest time and energy in the relationship and are expected to offer guidance on career goals and development, provide open and honest feedback, and share experience with their matched mentee. Participants will determine a mutually agreed upon schedule and frequency for meetings between formal sessions. Formal sessions will include quarterly "lunch and learn" programs that focus on mentoring and manager resources.
