This webinar will describe scenarios on how a mentor can strengthen a residents education in their pursuit to becoming a surgeon. Study habits, research, case preparation, clinical trial involvement, as well as professionalism will all be discussed. The goal of a mentor-mentee relationship is to maximize a residents educational experience, make him the most marketable whether he pursues fellowship training or employment, and ensure that the next generation of physicians will be able to impart their wisdom for their students and residents.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the definition of mentoring
