A mentorship relationship has been established to provide a more formal mentoring structure in an effort to promote more direct and open bidirectional exchanges of research ideas and to promote regular updates on progress.
The following early clinician-scientists with excellent training and strong potential have agreed to be mentored. They are in the first 1-2 years of their academic careers. With their consent, they have been paired with seasoned experienced clinician-scientists who have agreed to participate and actively engaged with their chosen mentees.
The mentees and mentors are required to meet one another at least twice a year in person and in contact at least monthly to establish and review research goals and progress.
The success of this program will be determined by the success of the research track of the mentees in the following deliverables. At the end of a 5-year period, it is expected that at least 3 of the 5 mentees will be holding at least one peer-reviewed operation grant and at least 5 to10 will have a peer-reviewed publications in medium impact journals.
