Mentoring in Health Professions Education. This IAMSE Manual defines the field of academic medicine as highly dependent on finding and relating to mentors at virtually every stage of a doctor’s career. It describes and analyzes successful mentor/mentee relationships, examining personal experiences, as well as a data-driven approach, to explore the many different roles and perspectives on mentoring relationships and ultimately the mentoring culture. The editors look at the data with respect to the success of different mentoring strategies and diverse programs.
Rubrics – A tool for feedback and assessment viewed from different perspectives. This IAMSE Manual describes how to use rubrics in higher education, especially in the highly specialized health sciences education setting. The book provides a conceptual framework, practices and a series of checklists that lecturers can use to design their own rubrics for a variety of situations and content. It highlights varying perspectives, from teachers, students, educational advisors, and curriculum managers, while providing practical tips for developing and using rubrics.
