Mentor Match Program

Be a Mentor, Mentee—or Both!

The Society of Toxicology recognizes the importance of mentoring in the scientific and professional development of its members. The Mentor Match program, available only to SOT members, connects mentees with potential mentors, who can provide advice on career path selection, professional development, and life/work balance issues. SOT members are encouraged to share their professional knowledge and experience by serving as mentors for colleagues and for the next generation of toxicologists. The SOT Annual Meeting provides a great opportunity for the mentor and mentee to meet in person. We strongly encourage members of the Society to visit the Mentor Match site and register online as mentors and/or mentees.
