Pediatric Mentoring Circles
With the support of the American Academy of Pediatrics, T4D is proud to debut its Pediatrics Mentoring Circles, a program focused on strengthening the pipeline to careers in pediatric medicine. T4D Pediatrician Mentors will provide advising and tiered mentorship in order to empower students along a pathway of exploration and focus on children, families, and their well-being. Monthly virtual workshops will provide introductory knowledge and skills and unique mentoring sessions will expose students to real experiences.
Our Mentors are featured in one-on-one monthly interviews on Instagram Live, sharing their stories and describing their daily experiences for students to learn from.
