House of Cards mentorship system

  • House of Cards is a formal peer mentorship system that was developed to help physicians transition into fellowship, form meaningful relationships with faculty, and improve their overall experience
  • Each "house" is comprised of one fellow from each class and one faculty mentor. The third year fellow acts as the house leader and organizes regular house meetings.
  • In addition to these meetings, fellows are encouraged to regularly check in with each other throughout the year and to help each other with conference preparation, board preparation and other clinical and academic milestones.
