Call for Mentees

Dear SMDM Member

As in previous years, the SMDM Career Development Committee is excited to offer a formal mentoring program this year. The SMDM One-to-One Mentoring program at the Annual Meeting offers the opportunity for students, post-doctoral fellows, junior faculty/scientists, and other trainees and early career researchers to meet and get advice from more established members of the SMDM. The focus of the one-to-one mentoring may include discussions on career development, pathways to success in the field of medical decision-making, advice and insight about professional development, or how to become more involved in SMDM activities.

If you would like to participate as a mentee, please click the button below to sign up for the program and to view a list of SMDM mentors who have volunteered for this program. You will be matched to a mentor based on your preference. Participating mentors and mentees are encouraged to communicate before the annual meeting to make arrangements to meet.

Please sign up by Thursday, 5 October, 2023


Please contact if you have trouble using the website or have any questions about the mentoring program.

In the past, mentors and mentees have found this program to be a tremendously rewarding experience. We hope that you will participate, and we look forward to seeing you in October!

I have been coming to SMDM for the past 11 years and return every year because it’s the only society where research is presented, and training is provided on methods of informing medical decision making across the spectrum.
