The Academy of Surgical Research Mentorship Program aims to further enable ASR members, both those starting out as well as seasoned individuals, to grow and lead as effective professionals by providing meaningful one-on-one mentoring relationships.
Each mentee and mentor pair will design a shared goal/outcome for their partnership to be completed during a period of up to one-year mentorship. A few examples of possible goals for a mentorship could be:
- A mentee that is new to the field of surgical research and seeking guidance on development and career paths.
- A mentee planning to sit for one of the certification exams and seeking guidance from a certified member on the process from the application, what/how to study and taking the exam itself.
- A mentee looking to develop a new surgical model and seeking guidance from a certified surgeon with significant experience in that particular model or area of surgery.
