There are many factors that will contribute to the success of your clinical pharmacology career, including your own commitment to excellence and finding the right opportunities. Why not enhance your potential for achievement by taking advantage of an ACCP Mentor to provide guidance and answer your questions?
The Mentoring Program at ACCP includes two options:
The first is a short-term relationship for a review of your CV to offer suggestions that will enhance your CV to include pertinent information that hiring managers are looking for and increase your likelihood of success in your job search. This opportunity grew from an offering at the ACCP Annual Meeting to a year-round offering and colleagues who have taken advantage of a CV review have overwhelmingly found it to be a positive experience. Send your CV now to Klevy@ACCP1.org and help us by sharing what you hope to achieve through the review and what your plans are for the next step in your career.
The second opportunity is to seek an ACCP Mentor with whom you will develop a longer-term relationship to help you focus your efforts, make suggestions for the acquisition of additional skill sets and expertise, guide you on your career path and answer questions to aid you in career-based decisions. In requesting a Mentor, please provide information as to why you are seeking a mentor and feel free to recommend a Mentor from the online list ACCP provides. Please complete the Mentoring Request Form and submit it. The ACCP Mentoring Program Liaison will be in touch with you shortly to facilitate a match with an appropriate Mentor. The frequency of contact is ultimately up to the Mentor and Mentee. The match is intended to last for one year, but Mentors and Mentees are encouraged to continue communication, if desired.
Still unsure how the ACCP Mentoring Program works? We’ve provided additional guidance on what you need to consider to ensure a successful Mentor-Mentee relationship.
Contact ACCP now to request a Mentor for the guidance to set you on the path to a successful clinical pharmacology career!
