Mentorship is an essential part of a successful career, but it is not always available or effectively implemented. Mentorship at all levels of the professional continuum should occur, including medical and graduate students, residents, fellows, and faculty members. The 2018 Education SIG will present an overview of what constitutes effective mentorship, followed by succinct presentations about mentorship at various career levels including residency, junior faculty, and senior leadership. Special consideration will be given to the mentorship of women and minorities, as well as the role of the mentee in this process. A lively discussion is expected to follow these presentations.
