Thank you everyone who signed up for our 2021-2022 mentorship program! Mentorship pairings are complete – 112 mentees were matched. Unfortunately, there were some individuals who signed up but weren’t considered priority due to the stipulations of the program. There may be a few more matches coming in the next few weeks. Please direct any questions to Surya.Veerabagu@Pennmedicine.upenn.edu.
DIGA Mentorship Program FAQs
Our National Dermatology Residency Database Director, Surya Veerabagu, created the DIGA Mentorship Program to connect medical students and residents across the country and foster relationships. The FAQs are specific for UIM applicants as there were not enough UIM mentors available. Therefore, an open forum for UIM mentees has been created to unanimously ask questions to a UIM program director, Dr. Luke, PD at Loma Linda, and Dr. DaSilva, a UIM resident at the University of Pennsylvania to address from both of their perspectives.
