Got Mentorship?


Historically, AAP's Annual Meeting has fostered an atmosphere that has inspired academic connections! At the start of this year’s meeting, AAP mentors will be officially recognized as wearing “mentor ribbons” signifying their commitment and openness to informal interaction with potential mentees during the Annual Meeting. In addition, a formal, or more structured event, sponsored by the Career Development Committee include the Career Development Luncheon.


Career Development Luncheon (available to all AAP Annual Meeting attendees)

Thursday, September 6th

​12 - 1:30 pm

CV mentorship provides 1:1 curriculum vitae review by senior level psychiatrists. Attendees should bring a copy of their curriculum vitae on larger mobile devices (laptop or tablet) or a printed version.  


Table topics for mentor/mentee small group discussions, designed for early career faculty members and trainees, are intended to foster future collaboration and scholarly and career mentoring. Topics to include academic careers for clinician-educators, educational research, manuscript preparation, job searches, CV building and grant funding.  


Become a Mentor 

We want to continue to offer opportunities for mentors and mentees to connect at the onset of the meeting. If you can serve as an AAP mentor during the meeting or if you are interested in participating in the mentor-mentee events, contact Jesse Markman, at When preregistering for the meeting, be sure to indicate your interest to be a mentor. Mentors will be provided name-badge ribbons. Mentors agree to meet with mentees formally during the Career Development Luncheon as well as informally throughout the annual meeting.
