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
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.
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.
