EAST Mentoring Program

EAST is pleased to announce the 2016 EAST Mentoring Program for members of EAST.  This program is under the direction of the EAST Mentoring Section.  The goal of the Mentoring Program is promotion of academic and personal growth of the young trauma and acute care surgeon by providing extramural mentorship over a 1-year period.  We expect pairs to develop and submit an annual strategic plan, communicate with each other consistently, meet each other annually, and hopefully develop a long-term relationship.

The call for Mentee applications for the 2016 EAST Mentoring Program is now closed.  The submission deadline to participate in the program as a Mentee was February 1, 2016.  The EAST Mentoring Section will match Mentee to a Mentor by March 1, 2016.  


  • We are still looking for Mentors!  To participate as a Mentor in the 2016 EAST Mentoring Program, email Rachel Dixon (rdixon@east.org), EAST’s Meeting and Association Manager.
