Mentorship Program

Created in 2014, the IDWeek Mentorship Program was developed to provide a platform for more ID mentorship opportunities. The program provides mentees with access to both leaders in the field of ID and the academic support they need to create their imprint on the ID community. The impact of this program will have long-lasting benefits.

This program focuses on effective mentor and mentee interactions by incorporating three key elements in our program: support, education and a vision of the mentee’s future career. Mentors help mentees to think strategically about their careers and provide insightful guidance for mentees during the varying stages of their career development. Through this program, mentees will apply to be matched with a mentor that works in a focus area in which the mentee has an interest.

Mentees must be medical students, residents and/or fellows or PharmD student, PharmD residents, and/or PharmD fellows from an accredited medical school, residency, or ID fellowship training program in the United States, Mexico, or Canada. Mentees must also be registered for IDWeek.

Mentors must be post-fellowship and registered for IDWeek.

The application period will open in the summer of 2021. Please direct all questions about the program to IDWeekMentorship@IDSociety.org
