"I have participated in the Mentoring Program at the American College of Clinical Pharmacology® since 2016 and I have had nothing but positive experiences with it. I have been so fortunate to work with two Mentors, both from industry, and gained network and skillsets pertinent to a career in clinical pharmacology. I wish I could give back to this program upon my graduation by serving as a Mentor to other Trainees."
