Benefits of ATS Mentorship

The ATS Assembly Mentoring Programs' mission is to engage ATS members in the Assemblies, connect early to mid-career professionals with senior members of their respective assemblies, and create a supportive community for career development and networking.

This program is designed to foster mentoring connections through individualized attention and matches mentees with mentors based on their areas of interest (e.g., clinical practice, medical education, research, scholarship, work-life balance, networking within the Assembly, and more).  

ATS facilitates a one-time mentoring experience and requires mentees and mentors to connect virtually at their convenience. Mentorship can extend beyond the initial virtual meeting if the mentor and mentee choose, but this is not mandatory. 

New this year is the opportunity for mentorship in Medical Education and the ATS Health Equality and Diversity Committee Mentorship Program for those underrepresented in medicine.

Currently, all fourteen ATS assemblies are offering mentoring programs including the Section on Medical Education. Click on the links below to check out each assembly mentoring program's goals and expectations. 

The deadline to apply is May 24, 2021.

Please note: Applicants are able to sign up for medical education mentoring through their primary Assembly and may be assigned to a mentoring match outside of their Assembly based on their medical education interest. As an active ATS member, you can sign up as a mentee and mentor. Both mentees and mentors must be an ATS member to participate. If you did not sign up for as assembly, you can do so at any time by visiting the ATS website, clicking on the members tab then selecting "Update Your Profile". Changes will update in the ATS database in one hour. Mentees can only sign up for one assembly's mentoring program, whereas mentors can sign up for multiple assemblies. 

We look forward to your participation in the ATS Assembly Mentoring Programs! For more information contact Nicole Feijoo, Assembly Programs Coordinator.
