CP Mentoring Program

The Clinical Problems Mentoring Program is a fantastic opportunity for early career attendees of the annual ATS International Conference to meet with an assigned senior member (mentor) within the assembly and get some one-on-one advice!

This program's mission is to welcome members to the CP Assembly and the ATS meeting, and to create a supportive community for the career development of our next generation of students, physicians, and investigators.

Anyone can sign up to be a mentee or a mentor (or both). Prospective mentors and mentees will be asked to provide us with some brief information about their background, scholarly activities, research, and career goals in a brief on-line survey (takes less than 5 minutes to complete). Each prospective mentee will be paired up with an individual mentor based on the answers provided in this survey.

We know everyone is busy, but this limited time commitment can make a big difference in developing careers!

Expectations for Mentors

  1. Attend the ATS conference and meet once with mentee. Mentorship can extend beyond the initial meeting if the mentor and mentee choose, but this is not mandatory.
  2. Advise on the mentee's short- and long- term goals, and assist in strategizing to achieve these goals.
  3. Encourage mentee to attend the Clinical Problems business meeting.

Expectations for Mentees

  1. It is the responsibility of the mentee to reach out to the mentor via email to arrange a face-to-face meeting during the ATS conference. Be proactive and respectful of your mentor’s time.
  2. Mentees should identify their specific developmental needs and goals prior the meeting.
  3. Mentees should prepare a short bio and CV to share with their mentor.

We would like to thank everyone in advance for their participation in this program. We realize the value of everyone's time. Your dedication and generosity will ensure our continued success with CP membership and the future of this Assembly.
