PURPOSE/

OBJECTIVES:

In addition to an established peer mentoring programme, the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, School of Dentistry introduced a faculty-student mentoring programme, the first-year dental student (D1)-Faculty Guide Program, in 2013. The intent of the D1-Guide Program was to provide faculty mentorship for D1 students. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of the programme and identify areas for improvement.

METHODS:

Faculty members, D2 and D3 students were surveyed regarding their experiences and perceptions of the D1-Guide Program with a seven question and 12 question survey, respectively, via Survey Monkey® and data were analysed.

RESULTS:

The response rate for the students and faculty was 61% and 64%, respectively. The majority of faculty (92%) felt comfortable serving as a guide to the D1 students with 79% of those surveyed having served as a guide for 3 or 4 years. The majority of students (81%) felt that the D1-Guide Program provided mentoring that was not redundant to existing peer mentoring and valuable to their acclimation to dental school.

CONCLUSIONS:

Despite adding additional duties for faculty and students, the D1-Guide Program was considered valuable during the student's first year of dental school with encouragement to continue the programme. The programme helped establish a student-faculty rapport beyond the boundaries of the classroom.
