Extract

I read with interest the study by Freeman et al1 that identified an association between resident training satisfaction and having a mentor. It was interesting that a small proportion of the surveyed dermatology residents either did not have a mentor or were not satisfied with the quality or availability of current mentors. Training programs must develop strategies to address the mentoring needs of these resident subgroups.

Schematic model of the mentoring process. Mentor and mentee training in an environment that encourages and supports mentoring may increase the proportion of residents who seek out mentors (A1), decrease the proportion of residents who are without mentors (B2), and decrease the proportion of residents who are dissatisfied with the mentoring process (B3).
