Manager Mentor Program
Currently in its inaugural year, the Manager Mentor Program 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 will provide opportunities for new 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.

Applications for the 2020-2021 cycle will open in Spring 2020.
