Cancer and Blood Diseases Center
A clinical mentor is assigned to each first year fellow. The two meet about every three months to discuss any issues that may arise during that time. In addition, the mentor receives copies of the performance reviews done by the attending at the end of each rotation. Should problems be detected, the clinical mentor will work with the fellow and the rest of the clinical staff as appropriate to address the issues. The clinical mentor remains assigned to the fellow throughout his/her fellowship. Beginning in 2008, Dr. Williams and Grier also meet twice/year with each fellow to discuss goals, performance and personal issues and provide overall guidance for the fellow during all three years of fellowship.
