Resident Mentorship Program

The MAA is forming a Resident Mentorship Program. You may recall receiving an email previously to assess interest in mentoring among our members. The MAA Mentorship Program has been received with great enthusiasm among residency programs in the area, as there continues to be a great need to expose residents to the full range of career options available to them and help residents shift into working in a new era of medicine. The new mentorship program is designed to foster a greater sense of collegiality toward young physicians in the Atlanta area and give back to the community we serve. We are encouraging physicians of MAA to sign up to serve as a mentor to a resident in medicine.  Residents in the mentorship program are in training programs at the Atlanta Medical Center, Emory, and Morehouse.  Mentors and mentees will be matched based on specialty and other interests, such as health care administration, work life/family balance, private practice vs. hospital medicine, and alternative careers in medicine.
 
A minimum time commitment is involved and can be tailored to fit what you are able to offer. For example, some physicians may want to meet with their mentee once or twice a year to answer questions or provide career advice. Physicians who are able, may provide a 1-day (or 1/2 day) shadowing experience, but this is not required.  More information about mentoring options will be sent out soon.

MAA will sponsor a social activity in 2013 for members and the new mentees. Please do not hesitate to contact the MAA office at 404-881-1020 if you have questions about the Mentorship Program. You may also contact Dr. Sumayah Taliaferro, Chair of the Mentorship Program, directly at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

MEDICAL ASSOCIATION OF ATLANTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR HONORED

ATLANTA – David F. Waldrep, the executive director of the Medical Association of Atlanta (MAA), received the Donna Glass Non-Physician Distinguished Service Award at the Medical Association of Georgia's (MAG) 158th House of Delegates meeting in Savannah on October 20. The award honors a non-physician for contributions to the advancement and support of medicine. 

The MAA board members who nominated him for the award wrote that, "Mr. Waldrep has distinguished himself across many dimensions...his incisive financial acumen and strict adherence to accounting standards of practice, coupled with his unquestionable integrity, was just what 'the doctor ordered' to restore the association to financial stability."

Since assuming the reins as executive director in 2008, MAA's membership has doubled – growing from about 600 paid members to some 1,200 paid members. The MAA board members said that, "...David was centrally responsible (for this growth)." He is also credited with helping to recruit several large, high-profile groups – including The Southeast Permanente Medical Group and the Piedmont Physicians Group. Moreover, Waldrep has guided an investment strategy that has yielded a 20 percent return for MAA.

The MAA board members said that Waldrep has created an "effective venue and forum" for MAA physicians to participate in the advocacy arena at the state and local levels with the introduction of an annual legislative dinner, and he is building MAG's brand by promoting joint efforts with other county medical societies in the state – including Cobb, DeKalb and Gwinnett.

The MAA leaders concluded that, "In short, David has taken personal ownership of our association in a way that goes beyond his personal employment. He has protected and enriched MAA and the profession in Atlanta."

Waldrep lives in Marietta with his wife, Margaret.

With more than 7,000 members, MAG is the leading voice for the medical profession in Georgia. MAG membership has increased by more than 20 percent since the beginning of 2011. Go to www.mag.org for additional information.
