What is a mentor?
A mentor is an experienced person who can offer you advice on your education, future career and networking opportunities.
Why would I need a mentor?
ACP recognizes that the years of an internistís education, training and early career are those of excitement, challenge and anxiety. If you have specific questions about scheduling your summer preceptorships, getting through the match, and preparing for clerkships and residency interviews, we encourage you to seek out a mentor who can provide the guidance and information you need.
Who would become my mentor?
The Mentoring Database is comprised of College members, including Program Directors, Clerkship Directors, Chairs of Medicine, and practicing internists, and residents.
