Career Mentorship Timeline

The Career Mentorship Program will take place remotely throughout the week before the symposium (November 7, 2023 – December 1, 2023), and will focus on pairing mentees with mentors who can provide advice on career-related topics (e.g., developing a long-term research plan, doing healthcare research in industry, work-life balance). The primary expectations of the program are:

  1. Attendance of an online one-hour group mentoring workshop on November 21, 2023;
  2. Participation in an hour-long 1-1 mentoring session to provide advice on the topics of interest.

We especially encourage less-experienced attendees to sign up as mentees, as well as senior community members to serve as mentors for these programs.

If you are interested in participating in the career mentorship program as a mentor or mentee, please sign up using the following forms:

Mentors and mentees will be matched based on time availability and selected topics of expertise/interest for providing and receiving mentorship respectively. We will aim to match each mentor with 3-4 mentees.

We aim to gather a diverse pool of mentees and mentors. Please share broadly and do not hesitate to sign up if you are from an under-represented group in the field!
