Mentorship Program

CIS's Mentorship Program provides an additional source of value for your CIS membership! Connect with a Mentor or a Mentee, and continue to develop your skills and career.


How much time will you need to commit?

Maximum of 12 hours per calendar year; not more than 4-5 hours per quarter (1 hour/month). The suggested length of the relationship is one year, unless both individuals would like to continue for a longer period of time.

What will mentoring entail?

Mentoring can include various aspects of developing and nurturing the career and progression goals of the mentee. It can include direct personal interactions (face-to-face), phone, or email discussions, and could cover a range of topics including, but not limited to, difficult clinical cases, career guidance, grant assistance and review, work-life balance, issues/barriers women currently face in science, general networking, etc.



Become a Mentor

A mentor can be a full member of CIS with 8 or more years in a faculty position, or senior position (M.D. and/or Ph.D), if in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry, or a previous recipient of a CIS grant. You may be located anywhere on the globe!
