Mentorship

What do we do?

The Mentorship Committee is in charge of organizing seminars and workshops and provide resources to promote successful mentorship practice. We also organize events to bring postdocs and potential mentors and mentees together to facilitate the development of new mentor-mentee relationships. One ongoing initiative is the YPA Buddy Program which pairs incoming postdocs with current postdocs already at Yale to facilitate the incoming postdoc’s transition to Yale and New Haven. 

How can you get involved?

We are always looking for help! If you are enthusiastic about mentoring and/or you have some ideas for potential workshops/seminars/events, we would love to hear from you! Please feel free to email our two Mentorship Committee Coordinators with ideas and suggestions.
