Diversity Mentorship Program: Current mentors

The American Academy of Dermatology's Diversity Task Force has chosen 17 medical students for the 2014 Diversity Medical Student Mentorship Program. 

Each student spends 160 hours, or one full month, working with his or her mentor. Program mentors are from a variety of backgrounds, including private practice, research, and academia. The program provides students with hands-on experience in dermatology, and aims to spark a lifetime interest in the specialty.

The Academy is looking for members to serve as volunteer mentors for the program. Students are free to choose their own mentors, and the Academy provides a list of members who have expressed interest specifically in the Diversity Medical Student Mentorship Program. If you are interested, please complete the online mentor profile.

If you have any questions, email Tina Matillano at timatillano@aad.org or call (847) 240-1280.
