Seeking Applicants for Gateway Coaching Program

We are seeking interested clinical faculty for positions as faculty coaches as part of the Gateway Coaching Program beginning in 2021. This will be the second cohort of coaches in the second year of the program.

The mission of the Gateway Coaching Program is to form longitudinal relationships between faculty coaches and students in a safe environment that will support students in their personal and professional development, so they may achieve their highest potential and be their most authentic selves. Specifically, coaches will be charged with understanding students’ unique professional journey and facilitating individualized strategies in 1:1 meetings and small group discussions utilizing narrative reflection and student assessment data. The coaches will integrate these strategies within the structure of Gateway Curriculum.

This program is integral to the success of the Gateway Curriculum and the students within. It is a shift away from standard advising and mentoring models. Coaches are provided with 0.2 FTE of salary support from the Office of Education and this position begins August 1, 2021. Current decanal position, residency program directors, clerkship directors, or module directors are not eligible for this position due to their roles and responsibilities.

We will be holding two informational sessions for interested persons, led by Dr. Nichole Zehnder, Associate Dean for Educational Strategy and the Gateway Coaching Program Director and Andy Wiegert, Student Affairs Manager:
