Mentoring has been an intuitive core value of USCAP for years, but the process has not been previously formalized as structured relationships between mentors and mentees. The immeasurable mutual benefits of a mentoring relationship culminate in creating a better pathologist. The Mentoring Academy is your invitation to partner with someone who will make a difference in your life.

Think of these faces when mentoring is on your mind. You can depend on them to smile when they help you through questions and glitches, soothe your anxieties, resolve complaints,
and inspire your relationship with the other guy in your dyad.
Why Become a Mentor?
A mentor is a guide. A resource who helps pave the way for others to succeed. It’s not about having all the right answers. Your role as a mentor is to inspire, encourage, and support your mentee, contributing to their development through thoughtful conversation and consultation. At its core, being a Mentor is being a trusted advisor.
Why Become a Mentee?
With the help of a mentor, you can gain new knowledge and skillsets that can broaden your career opportunities and personal networks for advancement. As a mentee, gain the confidence necessary to tackle short and long-term goals, navigate challenges, and accelerate your growth.
“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” – Steven Spielberg
