Our members have varied career goals. And we’re here to support them all. Those who are new to the field can engage in opportunities that help define direction and build core skills. For those further along, longitudinal programs nurture confidence and effectiveness in leadership positions. Structured mentoring can play a powerful role in supporting you at any phase of your journey. SGIM offers invaluable networking opportunities that open doors to your next project or career move.

One-on-One
Mentoring

Learn More Here!

The One-On-One Mentoring Program offers students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty a valuable opportunity to speak privately with a more senior SGIM mentor from a different institution. Even if you have a mentor at your own institution, this program will allow you to meet someone who may offer a new perspective on your professional goals and challenges. Topics for discussion may include early- or mid-career advice, research, job responsibilities and professional challenges. All participants will be asked to identify areas of interest to ensure pairs are matched according to their needs.

Presenting at the meeting? Request a mentor and ask them to attend your presentation so they can provide you with feedback. The program offers senior SGIM members an opportunity to provide counseling and guidance to future SGIM leaders.

WMC Career Advising Program

Learn More Here!

The Women & Medicine Commission’s Career Advising Program (CAP) is a longitudinal sponsorship initiative to help female junior faculty successfully navigate the academic promotion process. By connecting these members with senior “Career Advisors” throughout SGIM (i.e., Associate or Full Professors), we hope to foster academic advancement of women in medicine. Advising focuses on CV preparation, targeted committee membership, and strategies for relationship-building with external promotion letter writers.
