Conclusion

Academic development in GIM is a challenging and difficult process. Mentoring may be an essential ingredient to that process. It is important to structure programs such that these relationships can develop effectively. In doing so, GIM divisions must deal with problems raised by having young faculty with diverse research interests. By supporting good mentoring relationships, GIM divisions may help their research and tranining programs to flourish.
