The INAAP is excited to announce a new way for pediatricians to get involved in their field – the IU Pediatric Mentorship Program! The goal of this program is for IU medical students interested in learning more about or pursuing pediatrics to be paired one-on-one with a resident or practicing pediatrician. Students involved in the program are from around the state and in all years of medical school, and have interests ranging from general pediatrics to specialties. There is no strict time commitment; however, physicians will be encouraged to correspond via e-mail with their student at least once quarterly to answer their questions about the life and practice of a pediatrician. If time permits, physicians can also choose to meet with their student or provide shadowing opportunities.
If you are interested in learning more about this program, please contact Janice Lin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
