Our audience — We serve the professional and career development needs of assistant and early associate professors but are open to all faculty desiring a mentoring environment to help achieve their professional goals.
Mission — Develop the next generation of independent, highly successful academic faculty and advance the UC Davis Schools of Health.
Vision — Reorient the culture of the institution to support, reward, and enhance quality mentoring in the human health sciences.
What our program participants say…
Mentoring supports my academic life
Being in academia provides the opportunity to participate in cutting edge research with brilliant collaborators. Implementation science research allows me to bring science to a diverse group of people that I might not otherwise ever get to meet, in my neighborhood and across the world.
— Former mentee, Aubyn Stahmer, Ph.D., M.P.H., Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Find a good mentor early on
Probably the most important element, especially early on, is to find a good mentor. An excellent mentor is one who understands your level of skills, knows what your career goals are, and is able to guide you through a successful path.
