Student/Faculty Mentorship Program

The Student/Faculty Mentorship Program is a program set up for first year dental students at UCSF to be matched up with a faculty mentor that they can go to with any questions that they may have. Some faculty mentors like to take their mentee groups out to lunch every once in a while or invite their mentees to their practice to show them how they run things in their own practice. This program has been very successful and is continuously improving as it gives many students a faculty mentor that they feel comfortable going to whenever they need advice. These mentors are assigned at the beginning of the D1 year to help with the transition into dental school, but they are also valued as mentors for life!
