PhD Program Advisor with William Strampel, DO, Dean
MD-PhD students have access to many different levels of mentoring. The MD-PhD program assigns all students an individual advisor. The group of people who serve as mentors are members of the Penn faculty who themselves have both an MD and PhD, or who have an MD and are also scientists. First and second year students are expected to meet with their advisors at least twice a year. Students in year three and beyond must meet with their advisors a minimum of once a year. All students are strongly encouraged to be in touch with their advisors more often -either through additional meetings or by e-mail or phone. Our vision is that the MD-PhD program advisor will help provide mentoring and guidance on many issues, particularly those unique to MD-PhD training and careers. (The MD-PhD mentors are: Skip Brass, Alice Chen-Plotkin, Lewis Chodosh, Carolyn Felix, Roger Greenberg, Taku Kambayashi, Mark Kahn, Max Kelz, Peter Klein, Rahul Kohli, Dennis Kolson, Edward Lee, Nina Luning Prak, Aimee Payne, Ben Stanger, Kate Sullivan, and Becky Wells). All MD-PhD students are assigned to one of the MD-PhD Program Advisors. These are a select group of Penn physician scientists. You are expected to meet with your mentor at least once a year, and are strongly encouraged to be in touch with him/her more often -either through additional meetings or by e-mail or phone. Our vision is that the MD-PhD program advisor will help provide mentoring and guidance on many issues, particularly those unique to MD-PhD training and careers. In addition to the MD-PhD program advisor, students will receive guidance from a wide variety of other sources: the Medical School Associate Deans, Graduate Group Chairs and advisors, thesis mentors, thesis committee members, and other faculty members. We strongly encourage you to network and talk with a diverse group of faculty members about your training and career plans. If a student is offered a GRA, the faculty member offering the GRA will need to contact the ECE PhD Program Advisor/Coordinator to start the process. All students who receive a GRA will need to sign a contract along with their academic supervisor(s) and employing faculty member. Students cannot be paid until all parties have signed the contract and it has been returned to EIT 3024.
