"Great way to make professional connections during the meeting that may continue beyond the meeting. Great for both fellows and junior faculty." - Daniel Crouch, MD, MS

Goals

  2. Increase junior faculty and trainee participation in the BSHSR Assembly and ATS committees.
  3. Help mentees gain perspective and feedback on their academic endeavors.
  4. Create potential for collaborative research or writing endeavors.

Expectations for Mentors
