Annual Meeting One-on-One Mentoring Program


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.  

Topics of discussion may include:
  • Early Career Advice:  selecting a residency / fellowship, writing a CV, establishing career goals, or finding a mentor
  • Mid-Career Advice: getting promoted, mentoring others, or job negotiation
  • Research: writing grants, career development awards, writing manuscripts, advice on a specific research project, or feedback on an oral abstract presentation
  • Job responsibilities: teaching, clinical care, or administration
  • Professional challenges: personal / professional balance, conflict at work, or changing jobs

Application Process and Program Requirements:

Both mentors and mentees must apply using the online application system. 
Mentees:  Must be SGIM member in good standing.  Available to all academic and professional stages.

Mentors:  Must be SGIM member in good standing.  Medical students and residents are not eligible to be mentors.

SGIM will soon launch its new mentoring platform, SGIM Mentor Match.  More information coming in February 2021!
