Mentoring at the Annual Meeting:

As in previous years, the SMDM Career Development 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 focus of the one-to-one meeting is usually to discuss career development issues, but topics may also include tips on navigating the conference, pathways to success in the field of medical decision making, advice and insight about professional development, or how to become more active in the Society.
