Serve as a Mentor

SGIM offers associates and faculty a valuable opportunity to speak privately with a senior SGIM mentor from a different institution. Mentors and mentees are matched based upon mutual interests and expectations, as well as designated career paths. Mentor-mentee pairs meet at least once during the annual meeting, and are encouraged to continue an ongoing relationship afterwards. It is a low stress opportunity for associates to meet with more experienced SGIM members and receive fresh perspectives on professional goals and projects.
