APA mentorship programs facilitate national relationships to give you access to career advice outside of your institution.
New Century Scholars Resident Mentoring Program
The New Century Scholars Resident Mentoring Program (NCS) is supported by the Academic Pediatric Association (APA), the American Pediatric Society (APS) and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) and is aimed at increasing the diversity of the academic general pediatric workforce.
An APA signature program, Speed Mentoring, features quick structured conversations between mentees and mentors followed by a group goal-setting discussion. Speed Mentoring takes place at the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) meeting, the Pediatric Hospital Medicine (PHM) meeting, and regional meetings.
