Pitt Mentors

If you ever had an inspirational teacher, role model or mentor, you probably still remember how important they were to you. Perhaps you had a teacher who gave you challenging math problems that really got you thinking, or you heard a talk by an astrophysicist who opened your eyes to the wonders of the universe. If you're a scientist, chances are someone encouraged you or provided a unique hands-on opportunity that got you excited about science - and helped you to realize your potential while giving you the confidence to explore your dreams.

If you are a faculty member in the Schools of the Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh, the Office of Science Education Outreach, Health Sciences, invites you to consider becoming a PITT Health Science Mentor. Upload your research opportunity »
