As requested by the AASLD Membership and Mentorship Committee and approved by the AASLD Governing Board, we have developed a Mentoring Program between Fellows of AASLD (FAASLD) and fellows-in-training and early-career hepatologists.
The intent of this program is to match FAASLD members with trainee members and hepatologists within two years of training in areas of interest to include research, career development, work/life balance, clinical practice and more.
This mentor/mentee relationship will initiate during The Liver Meeting® 2015 and then virtually, via Skype, email or telephone, or in person depending on location of the mentor/mentee pair. The time commitment will be for at least 12 months and can continue if mutually agreed upon by the mentor and mentee.
Mentors: Regular, International, and Emeritus Members with the FAASLD designation
Mentees: AASLD trainee members who are 3rd year combined GI/Hepatology fellows, 4th year advanced hepatology transplant fellows and those within two years of training.
Mentor/Mentee assignments will be made in early October and everyone notified of acceptance in the program.
A reception will be held during The Liver Meeting® 2015 on Saturday, November 14, 2015 at the Marriott Marquis to introduce the mentors to the mentees. Guidelines about mentor/mentee contact will be distributed prior to attendance at The Liver Meeting®.
Once you have decided to participate, you need to sign up by Friday, October 9, 2015. We will then send you information about your “mentee” and information about the reception being held at the Marriott Marquis on Saturday, November 14th at 7:00 pm.
