EAST Mentoring Program
EAST is pleased to announce the 2021 EAST Mentoring Program for EAST members officially kicking off this January 2021! The 2021 EAST Mentoring Program is now closed, the submission deadline to apply was October 5, 2020.
To those that submitted a Mentee or Mentor application for the program, the EAST Mentoring Committee will match and send communications regarding your assigned "Mentoring Family" by December 2020.
This program is under the direction of the EAST Mentoring Committee. The goal of the Mentoring Program is to promote the academic and personal growth of the young trauma and acute care surgeon by providing extramural mentorship over a 1-year period.
The 2021 program is once again implementing a multi-tiered approach to mentoring including a team of medical professionals to form a “Mentoring Family.”
We expect teams to develop an annual strategic plan, communicate with each other consistently, meet each other annually (if possible in-person while practicing social distancing or virtually), and hopefully develop a long-term relationship. The goal is that at the conclusion of the 1-year mentoring program all team members will have had the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop through their “Mentoring Family”. Based on the needs of the applicants each “Mentoring Family” will consist of between 3-5 team members.
We believe that every member no matter what stage they are at in their professional career has something to learn and offer and will be able to accomplish both through the structure of a multi-tiered mentoring program. The hope is that at the conclusion of the 1-year mentoring program all team members will have had the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop through their “Mentoring Family”.
