Compact Between Postdoctoral Appointees & Their Mentor

The foundation for a strong postdoc-mentor relationship is a commitment, mutual respect and understanding, and a clear understanding of expectations. Recognizing the importance of the postdoc-mentor relationship, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) developed a Compact Between Postdoctoral Appointees and Their Mentors to initiate discussions between postdocs and their mentors of expectations.  This document delineates responsibilities of both the postdoc and the mentor and may provide a framework for valuable conversations when beginning postdoctoral training.
