What is it?
The APOS Mentorship Committee is developing its first mentorship program! It’s an opportunity for members who are advanced in their careers to connect with students and early professionals on issues related to professional development, diversity issues, and personal growth.
To share experiences, build community, and cultivate relationships within APOS. This is a unique chance for veteran members to share new ideas and lessons learned with a new generation of psychosocial oncology professionals.
How does it work?
Sign up today to become a mentor, a mentee, or both! APOS will utilize a seamless integration of technology to match clinical/research interests. You will be matched based on your discipline, professional interests (e.g., research, clinical work), and preferred method and frequency of communication.
The APOS Mentorship Committee will help you get started by providing materials to guide your early conversations. Mentoring conversations will take place via your preferred mode of communication (email, phone, Skype/FaceTime), not to mention the all-important face-to-face opportunities at our annual meeting. You and your mentor/mentee get to determine when and how you would like to connect during the next 12 months.
