Mentoring Call for Applications is now CLOSED!  The Mentoring Committee has begun the matching process and will be in touch before the end of June.  Thank you for your patience!

Led by the American Psychosocial Oncology Society Mentoring Committee, the APOS Mentoring Program began in 2018 with the goal of matching early career professionals with experienced mentors in the field of psychosocial oncology. Within this program, we aim to share experiences, build community, and cultivate relationships within APOS.  This is a unique chance for senior leaders in the field to share new ideas and lessons learned with a new generation of psychosocial oncology professionals.  The APOS Mentorship Committee would like to invite you to apply for the Mentoring Program.

Applications are open now and close April 29th.  APOS members and non-members of various backgrounds and disciplines are encouraged to apply!  The APOS Mentoring Committee will help you get started by providing materials to guide your early conversations. Mentoring conversations will take place either via email, phone, or videoconference (zoom or Microsoft teams). Topics can range from personal and professional development as well as leadership to conducting research and providing clinical supervision.

Disclaimer: Though we will do our best to match mentors and mentees by discipline, we cannot guarantee this outcome for any of our matching pairs. Also, in lieu of the pandemic, our mentoring program will not be offering in-person contacts between the mentors and mentees.
