EAST Mentoring Program

EAST is pleased to announce the 2023 EAST Mentoring Program for EAST members officially kicking off this April 2023!  The 2023 EAST Mentoring Program is now open.  The submission deadline to apply is February 17, 2023.  

The EAST Mentoring Committee will match and send communications regarding your assigned "Mentoring Family" by early April.  The program will run April 2023-April 2024.

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 early to mid-career trauma and acute care surgeon by providing extramural mentorship over a 1-year period. 

The 2023 program is once again implementing a multi-tiered approach to mentoring including a team of medical professionals to form a “Mentoring Family” or "Mentoring Team".  

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” or "Mentoring Team".  The EAST Mentoring Program offers families consisting of 3-5 team members or the one to one Mentor to Mentee team concept.

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 the EAST Mentoring Program.

Apply

Submit the appropriate application by the deadline of February 17, 2023.  The EAST Mentoring Committee will match and send communications regarding your assigned "Mentoring Family" or "Mentoring Team" by April 2023.

Please note, the application includes multiple drop-down options for questions.  However you list the information on the application is EXACTLY what your "Mentoring Family" or "Mentoring Team" will see.
