In addition to regular education, PATHS has been shown to be effective with a number of special groups including deaf and hearing-impaired students, behaviourally disordered, learning disabled and gifted students, as well as students from a wide diversity of ethnic, cultural, socio-economic and family backgrounds. PATHS has also been shown to have positive benefits for students in rural settings.

PATHS is a program that targets the development of social and emotional competence in order to build children’s protective factors and decrease the risk of behavioural and social problems. It is designed to promote social and emotional competence, prevent violence, aggression and other behavioural problems, improve critical thinking skills and enhance the classroom climate.

The Association of American Medical Colleges is a not-for-profit association dedicated to transforming health care through innovative medical education, cutting-edge patient care, and groundbreaking medical research. Its members comprise all 149 accredited U.S. and 17 accredited Canadian medical schools; nearly 400 major teaching hospitals and health systems, including 51 Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers; and more than 80 academic societies. Through these institutions and organizations, the AAMC serves the leaders of America’s medical schools and teaching hospitals and their nearly 167,000 full-time faculty members, 88,000 medical students, and 124,000 resident physicians.

Promoting Academic Talent in the Health Sciences (PATHS), a joint venture between the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC, is a professional development program designed to encourage diverse faculty success.

The PATHS program pairs residents, fellows, and junior faculty members with senior faculty mentors in order to facilitate the retention and upward progression of mentees into senior faculty positions at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC.  Mentors serve as a guide and advocate for mentees through advising and identifying opportunities for advancement within the organization.

Through the development of a career mentoring relationship, mentors assist in the navigation of the academic environment and provide access to tools, experiences, connections, and a support system for the mentee.
