Leadership Academic Development

how it works:

  • AAP’s mentor program is a one-year program.
  • Membership is required for both mentors and mentees, and there is no cost to participate.
  • Mentors are required to be active Diplomate, Associate or Administrative Director members.
  • Medical Student members are eligible to participate in the Day in a Life program only.
  • Matching will be facilitated through completed online applications by both mentors and mentees.
  • Mentees are limited to one mentor at a time.
  • The level of commitment for all of the programs will be determined by the participants.

Mentors & Mentees will:

  • Determine the frequency and type of communications that will work best for them.
  • Complete an AAP Mentor Program survey at the end of the year.
  • Meet in-person at the AAP meeting if schedules allow.

Mentors should also:

    • Contact mentee within two weeks of match to establish a regular schedule and share contact information.
    • Communicate regularly based on an established schedule.
    • Work with the mentee to set goals and expectations for the program. Determine what guidance you can provide to help mentee achieve these goals.
    • Share your knowledge and expertise with the mentee.

    Mentees should also:

    • Keep scheduled commitments and provide advance notice of any unforeseen conflicts requiring rescheduling.
    • Work with mentor to set goals and expectations for the program, such as 3-month, 6-month and 1-year goals for the mentor/mentee relationship.
    • Review how your mentor can assist you in reaching those goals. What skills can your mentor provide guidance in developing?
    • Evaluate your progress and your work on meeting the goals you have set with your mentor.
