Mentoring Committee

The goal of EAST's Mentoring Program is promotion of academic and personal growth of the young acute care surgeon by providing extramural mentorship.  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.

Committee members are appointed by the President with approval by the Board of Directors.  Committee member terms are three years.  All terms begin in January and conclude in January in the year specificed in "term ends".
