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.
"I benefited from two fabulous mentors during fellowship and my early career which inspired me to give back to trainees and junior faculty." - ASPHO Mentor Emily Meier, MD MSHS
"Participating in the ASPHO mentoring program has been an incredible opportunity for me to receive career advice and mentorship to compliment what I receive at my home institution. I have been able to form an excellent professional relationship with my mentor. I hope to help a fellow trainee in the future as my mentor has helped me. This is an amazing program that I would highly recommend to junior members in our field." - Trisha Larkin, MD MBA FAAP
