SAVIR Mentor Program
The purpose of the longitudinal mentoring program is to provide a forum for ongoing mentorship, outside of the annual SAVIR meeting, in a group-based setting. Groups consist of 2-3 senior-level mentors and 4-6 mentees. Led by members of our committee, groups meet quarterly to discuss mentee-derived topics to aid in their professional development. Examples of group discussion topics include networking, grant writing, time management, skill building, publication, and development of short-and long-term career goals, among others.
Purpose: To provide a forum for students, early career professionals, and others to ask short, targeted questions of leaders in the injury prevention field. The session is designed to (1) assist mentees with career path and career growth decisions and (2) provide a structured and welcoming networking opportunity for both mentors and mentees
