AASLD Mentor Connect
AASLD recognizes the power of mentorship to shape the future of hepatology. Our Membership and Mentorship, Inclusion and Diversity, and Womens’ Initiatives Committees and AASLD staff have worked together to prepare a user-friendly virtual mentoring program, and memorable experience that will benefit hundreds of members who have indicated interest in our program. From one on one longitudinal matching to small group, topic based mentoring sessions, there is something for everyone at AASLD.
Our new mentoring platform enables AASLD members to find the right mentor or mentee for them, enables small groups to meet and share information on diverse topics, and provides technologies for you to connect, right in the platform.

What Members Are Saying
There are few things more instrumental to professional success than good, sustained mentorship. All of us have been aided along the way by a mentor who may have provided scientific guidance, offered constructive criticism, given advice about opportunities, encouraged us to pursue new directions, or simply taken an interest in and supported us. At every step of the career lifecycle, receiving effective mentorship makes a big difference. Raymond Chung, MD, FAASLD, AASLD Past President
Mentorship is important because it allows for the passing of knowledge and the creation of a lifelong friendship. It allows people to see themselves ten, twenty, even thirty years down the road. It creates opportunities for innovation, research and collaboration. Nikki Duong, MD, AASLD Member
