When:  Nov 12, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)

Hosted by the Student Services Personnel SIG.

The success of students enrolled in Pharm.D. programs is a priority of not only individual schools, but the entire pharmacy education community. University administrators have an obligation to support their students and provide them with opportunities for growth and development. Research indicates that graduate students, including those enrolled in Pharm.D. programs, benefit immensely from mentoring. This session will highlight several mentoring programs aimed to support students academically, professionally, and personally. 


By the end of this program, participants will be able to: 

  1. Compare and contrast various mentoring strategies, both formal and informal.
  2. Identify how mentoring programs can benefit Pharm.D. students.
  3. Discuss best practices related to organizing programs, funding mentoring operations, and engaging various constituents including students, faculty, and alumni.
