AAMC Mentorship Program 2012 – 2013



The AAMC Mentorship Program is a pilot 12-month program that will begin in September, 2012.  Approximately 5 mentors and 5 mentees will be matched based on a variety of criteria ranging from field and discipline-based interests, administrative skills, and expertise in different institution models. This will be a competitive program spearheaded by an AAMC trustee task force. The task force will make efforts to structure pairings in order to provide mentees with specific feedback and/or access to networks which will benefit their professional growth.   The task force will oversee the selection process and will provide ongoing support and evaluation to assist both mentors and mentees throughout the year.  The ultimate goal of this pilot initiative will be to launch an ongoing annual mentorship program that fosters deeper exchange between participants than the singular exchanges between junior and senior curators at the AAMC meeting each May, and that also fosters an ongoing instinct to mentor on the part of AAMC members at all levels. 


Program Benefits:

  • Highly selective and competitive application process to ensure that mentor and mentee are paired with similar expectations and goals
  • Ongoing support from AAMC Mentoring Task Force
  • Dedicated blog for mentors and mentees to communicate and share experiences throughout the program (one blog for each)
  • Early application and consideration for travel grant funds to the AAMC Annual Meeting


Application Deadline: September 15, 2012
