ABOUT THe Mentor-Mentee Program

Mentorship for academic clinicians is critically important. Academic clinicians who get mentored have been demonstrated to get more peer-reviewed research grants; to publish more papers in refereed journals; to get faster academic promotion; to be more likely to stay at their academic institutions; to report greater belief in their own ability to accomplish specific academic goals and tasks; to report greater career satisfaction (Straus SE, Sackett DL. Clin Trials. 2011).


The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), initiated the formal Mentor-Mentee program (MMP) in 2020.
