A Commitment to Mentoring
Reap the rewards of a mentor relationship
The ASPHO mentoring program has been established as part of our commitment to the professional development needs of our members. The goal of this program is to provide pediatric hematology/oncology trainees and practice professionals the opportunity for mentoring in clinical, research, and clinician educator pathways, as well as advice regarding career development. Offering guidance as members launch and navigate their careers helps develop a lasting foundation for excellent patient care, and is vital to the continued advancement of the field.
"More new and junior members need to know about this amazing program. I hope to, one day, be able to help someone as Dr. Hilden has helped me." Patrick Tomboc, DO

ASPHO is seeking mentors to establish a committed and diverse group of individuals willing to be matched with mentees. As a mentor, you choose to dedicate as much time as you are willing to give. Even connecting through e-mail, a phone call, or meeting at the annual meeting for coffee can make a difference to a mentee.
