Abstract

Introduction: Advising is happening across the medical education continuum, within non-medical graduate education programs, and is central to the advancement of said learners. This suggests that advising should play a role in graduate health progressions education (HPE) programs. Materials and Methods: To explore advising curricula among HPE programs, we conducted a website review of all published HPE programs on the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research's website. Results: We recognized the lack of information published on advisory roles in graduate HPE programs. This prompted a literature review, which revealed a similar gap. Conclusions: Advising serves to benefit a student, advisor, and program thus carrying importance and need for discussion. This article is intended to kick-start a scholarly discussion about advising within graduate HPE programs.
