UC/CCHMC Faculty Mentors

There are a number of ways for medical students to identify faculty mentors. 

The UC Research Directory allows users to enter keywords or search UC experts based on last name, grant funding, or type of studies conducted.

The faculty profiles below also provide additional information from potential faculty mentors based on their areas of interest.  Individual faculty pictures can then be highlighted to provide additional details, including contact information.
