SAIDE Staff Mentorship Program

The Tulane School of Medicine Staff Mentorship Program is a volunteer program that pairs experienced Tulane staff with newer staff who seek to develop themselves professionally. The program provides a supportive structure in which participants can cultivate contacts, explore challenges, and enhance effectiveness as they design their personal growth and career paths at Tulane. It also provides the opportunity to gather information, develop peer support, learn more about Tulane, and better understand the Tulane organizational culture and opportunities. The Staff Mentorship Program cycle runs 12 months based on the fiscal year, July 1 - June 30. You can find more information about the SAIDE Staff Mentorship Program in our program handbook. Below is a video with testimonials from previous participants, as well as links to applications for mentors and mentees. Please plan to submit you application by no later that June 15, 2024. Mentee applications request an updated resume, but please note this is just to give the subcommittee an idea of your professional background as we endeavor to match you with an ideal mentor.  If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Ragan Gankendorff who chairs this program, or Katy Dupree at
