Mentorship Program

The IDSA Foundation focuses on effective mentor/mentee interactions by incorporating three key elements in our program: support, education and a vision of the mentee’s future career.  Mentors help mentees to think strategically about their careers. Mentors also provide insightful guidance for mentees during the varying stages of their career development.  Through our program, medical students, residents and fellows apply to be matched with a mentor that works in a focus area in which the mentee has an interest.

All IDWeek attendees are welcome to participate in the program! Mentees even enjoy one-year FREE membership to IDSA. The application deadline was on August 24, 2018. Applications are now closed
