Mentors can use the P3 Interview tool to help researchers identify their key concerns and focus their interests into researchable questions that are aligned with their personal and professional priorities. Built on the foundations of learner-centered teaching and patient-centered care, the P3 Mentoring Model can help researchers organize their curiosity into researchable ques­tions, successful studies and organized programs of scholarship.

The P3 Mentoring Model is particularly helpful for: 

  • new researchers
  • early career academics
  • students and trainees
  • clinician-educators
  • community based researchers
  • generalist scholars
