    The aim of the study was to describe mentoring profile, correlate mentoring profile with mentoring effectiveness and career related outcomes. Cross sectional descriptive research with key informant interviews and survey as data collection procedures of all colleges of pharmacy in the NCR were employed for the studies. There were 13 deans, 80 junior faculty members and 34 identified mentors that participated in the study at 89.4% total response rate. Majority of relationships were between a junior and senior faculty member occurring in an informal and unstructured way. The benefits of mentoring relationships were higher percentage of research involvement, higher frequency of administrative positions, and more career related outcomes. The regression equation created from the analysis are [mentoring effectiveness score = 6.16 + 0.45 (cultivation phase) + 0.48 (formal mentoring program)] and [career related outcomes = 0.31 (mentoring effectiveness) – 0.08.]. The author recommends the creation of institutionalized formal mentoring programs that include characteristics of the program correlated to positive results.
