New mentoring book co-edited by Dr. Darshana Shah now available

Darshana T. Shah, Ph.D., professor of pathology and associate dean for faculty advancement at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, has co-edited a new book, Mentoring in Health Professions Education, alongside Alice Fornari, Ed.D., of Hofstra University. The authors and editors describe the success of various mentoring strategies and structures of diverse mentoring programs and share personal experiences and reflections in the manual chapters, including one chapter, “Effective Mentoring Team Using Team Science Competencies,” penned by Shah. 

Although this book emphasizes the mentoring of medical educators, the frameworks are applicable beyond health professions to include various academic roles across the continuum. The foreword was written by Joseph I. Shapiro, M.D., dean of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, as well as Lawrence G. Smith, M.D., dean of Hofstra University. The book is available online through Springer and Amazon.
