ObjectiveThis article will describe the implementation, development, and success of mentor teams for junior pharmacy practice faculty over a three-year period in a large, multi-site pharmacy practice department.MethodsOverall, 19 mentor teams consisting of one junior faculty member, two senior faculty members, and the junior faculty member’s supervisor were implemented in 2010. Assignments were made based upon survey results from all department members inquiring about mentoring needs and requests. In 2011, faculty members were asked about changing their mentor teams and for general feedback regarding the program. In 2012, faculty mentors completed a detailed survey questioning the mentor team process, activities, and outcomes.ResultsSurvey response rates were 93.9% or higher. Overall, 15 (94%) mentees stated the teams were helpful and 90% of faculty members requested no change to the mentor team. The teams were described as “somewhat successful” or “very successful” by 87% of faculty members. The top areas in which junior faculty stated they improved upon with assistance from the mentor teams were APPEs, promotion, and scholarship. Six (75%) faculty members stated the mentor team approach helped them achieve a successful promotion.ConclusionThe implementation of multi-member, peer mentor teams have provided success for junior faculty members of a pharmacy practice department dispersed throughout a state. Surveys inquiring about mentees’ mentor needs and mentors’ strengths are essential in forming well-matched teams.
