COMPASS Guide Job Description:

In order to support students in maximizing their personal and professional development, each student in the Trek curriculum will be paired with a COMPASS Guide for all 4 years of medical school. The COMPASS Guide will serve at times as a mentor, advisor, and coach but should approach all interactions with the student with a “coach approach.” Each Guide will support a total of 20 students (10 students per year in alternating years i.e., years 1 and 3). COMPASS Guides will be considered core faculty in the Trek curriculum and will be the primary faculty for the COMPASS Program which is a 4-year program that emphasizes COaching, Mindful reflection, Professional Identity Formation, Assessment, Self-directed learning, and Self-Care.  

Core faculty influence and shape student’s learning environment and their professional identity formation and therefore will be held to the highest professional standards.  Although coaching is central to the Guide’s job, they will also be responsible for other tasks in the curriculum. The Guides will meet individually with all students, teach in the first year of medical school, observe and provide feedback on clinical skills during the second year, monitor the student’s academic, professional and personal progress, participate in the Trek Progress Committee and teach elsewhere in the Trek curriculum.

Funding and reporting: COMPASS Guides will report to the Director of the COMPASS Program.  The COMPASS Guide position will be a part-time position initially with 0.2 FTE as compensation for July 2022 through June 2024 and then increased to 0.3 FTE when the Guides have 2 full cohorts of students. The salary will be tied to the NIH salary cap; benefits are applied to the salary support.  

There will be a total of ~36 Guides for the Trek curriculum (18 for each year of students). The Guides will be organized into six larger colleges.
