Academy Membership

Stanford Medicine’s Teaching and Mentoring Academy is designed to be an all-inclusive, schoolwide entity that promotes excellence in education by developing, supporting, and recognizing dedicated educators in the school. Our Academy membership structure serves two purposes: one, to encourage membership for any Stanford affiliate--faculty, trainee, staff--who wishes to be part of our community; two, to use membership as a mechanism for recognizing individuals who contribute significantly to the Academy’s work and/or whose teaching and mentoring merit reward. To these ends, membership to the Teaching and Mentoring Academy is offered in a tiered structure.
