2021 IDWeek Mentorship Program
Applications are now open for the 2021 virtual IDWeek Mentorship Program.Through this program, the IDSA Foundation connects experienced ID researchers and clinicians with medical students and residents and focuses on three key elements: professional development, education and a vision of the mentee’s future career.
Whether you are a seasoned infectious diseases specialist, an ID fellow or still deciding where to take your career, we invite you to apply now for the opportunity to make invaluable connections and create lifelong relationships within the ID community.
Our program focuses on effective mentor and 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 and provide insightful guidance for mentees during the varying stages of their career development. Through our virtual program, mentees will apply to be matched with a mentor that works in a focus area in which the mentee has an interest. The application period for both mentees and mentors will close on August 31, 2021, at 11:59PM.
