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 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
