AAMC Grads & Advisors Compact

A Compact Between Biomedical Graduate Students and their Research Advisors

The AAMC has set forth these guiding principles to support the development of a positive mentoring relationship between the pre-doctoral student and their research advisor. A successful student-mentor relationship requires commitment from the student, mentor, graduate program, and institution. This document offers a set of broad guidelines which are meant to initiate discussions at the local and national levels about the student-mentor relationship.
