One-to-One Mentoring Program Sign-up
This is a great opportunity for students, trainees, junior faculty, and new members of SMDM to meet individually and informally with long-standing members of the Society. As in previous years, the SMDM Education Committee is excited to offer a formal one-to-one mentoring program this year. Our one-to-one mentoring sessions at the Annual Meeting offer the opportunity for new meeting attendees, trainees, junior faculty, and others to meet and get advice from established members of the Society in an informal setting. The purpose of the program is to provide mentoring about career trajectory and research topics and establish new networks of colleagues. Other potential discussion topics could include navigating the Annual Meeting, discussion about presented research, perceived strengths and weaknesses in your work or skills and advice on improvement.

In addition, new this year, mentees will have the opportunity to meet mentors informally in groups during conference breaks in rooms divided as per four core research specialties. This will be an excellent opportunity for mentees to gain exposure to a broad group of experts and other mentees with similar research interests. You may organize with your mentor in advance to meet during the breaks while also giving you the opportunity to meet with other mentors at the meeting. There will be a room assigned to each research specialty during breaks, allowing you to attend whichever time slot best suits your schedule.

Please sign up by October 7th, 2015.
