Interested in mentoring opportunities at the SGIM Annual Meeting?  SGIM currently offers both one-on-one and panel mentoring to accommodate members' varying interests and needs.  

One-on-One Mentoring  

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.

Mentoring Panels

The mentoring panels offer another opportunity for students, residents, fellows, and faculty attending the SGIM conference to access mentors and have their questions answered on issues around practicing general internal medicine. 

  • Clinician Administrator Career Panel
  • Clinician Educator Career Panel
  • Clinician Investigator Career Panel
  • Medicine-Pediatrics Career Panel
  • Health Equity Commission Mentoring Panel
  • Parenting in Medicine Panel
  • Students and Residents Careers Panel

Mentorship in Academic Medicine Interest Group

Mentorship plays an essential role in ensuring success in academic medicine regardless of the level of training. Most medical schools assign mentors to medical students to ensure that they achieve and complete their medical school requirements. Similarly, residents and fellows have mentors to guide them through their training and to provide advice on career choices or research projects. Junior faculty and faculty of all levels also benefit from mentors throughout their academic career. 

The Mentorship in Academic Medicine Interest Group will focus on various aspects of mentorship such as guidelines to mentor clinician educators and researcher, evaluation and assess of mentors, peer mentorship and distant mentoring programs. One of the objectives of the Interest Group is to develop a repository of resources, guidelines or toolkits which can be disseminated or made available on websites to improve mentoring.
