The AGS offers opportunities for trainees and junior faculty to connect with active members of the AGS who serve as mentors. AGS mentors offer invaluable advice concerning educational and career choices. Mentoring relationships can be particularly important for healthcare trainees, who are presented with a wide array of options that help determine the focus of their careers.
In-Person Mentoring at AGS Annual Meeting
The In-Person Mentor Program at the AGS Annual Meeting matches students, residents and junior faculty with senior geriatrics faculty from across the country. The program mentees have the opportunity to meet with mentors one-on-one during the AGS Annual Meeting and discuss such topics as starting an academic career, locating research funding, learning more about geriatric practice and administration, and balancing career demands with a successful family life. Registration takes place March-April each year.
Virtual Mentor Match Program
In addition to the Annual Meeting Mentor Program, AGS & ADGAP have launched a virtual mentor match program for members. The program will benefit those who are unable to attend the annual meeting, and also facilitate communication that extends beyond the meeting and occurs year-round.
Join the virtual program today! Please note, you must be logged into your member account in order to enroll as a mentor or a mentee.
Are you a trainee interested in joining the virtual Mentor Match program? Remember that students and residents can become e-members of AGS for free. E-members receive some digital benefits from AGS, including the opportunity to join this program. Learn more about e-memberships here.
