The Pediatrics Mentoring Program promotes the career development of early-career investigators (instructors and assistant professors) in Pediatrics at Stanford through a formal mentoring program and the Stable of Mentors.

Program mentors specialize in four key development areas:

  • Clinical/Teaching

  • Work/Life Balance
  • Academic

Request a mentoring consultation if:
