Welcome to the Pediatric Mentoring Program

Our mentoring program is dedicated to the academic enrichment, satisfaction, and success of early career faculty in the Department of Pediatrics. Our mission is to foster the professional development of early career faculty in Pediatrics at Stanford through a formal mentorship program and creation of the stable of mentors. 

Some of our program highlights include:

Program Mentor: The Pediatric Mentoring Program (PMP) connects junior faculty with a mentor from our stable of mentors to provide guidance, counsel, and education. Program expectation is that you meet with your mentor at least twice per academic year and that the mentor is outside your division. 

Workshops: Seminars on topics of interest will be scheduled throughout the year. We encourage our mentees to take advantage of the sessions. Past sessions have included National and Regional Reputation in the CE Line, Personal Finance for Physicians 101, Appointments and Promotions Workshopand How to Master Your Time.  Mentees are notified of upcoming workshops via e-mail. 

Annual Online Survey: Mentees will receive an email each academic year requesting their honest, anonymous feedback about their experience with PMP. We value our mentees feedback as we strive to improve the program each year. 


A key component of our program is the stable of mentors who cover key areas, such as, clinical/teaching, research, work/life balance, and academics. They work together to provide targeted mentorship when requested by early career faculty. Their role supplements existing assigned primary mentors.           


Quarterly workshops are held through the Pediatric Mentoring Program, which are open to faculty and trainees in the Department of Pediatrics.
