STS Mentorship Program
The STS Mentorship Program is designed for members at any career level. Apply to become a mentor or request mentorship. Participation in this year-round program will be critical to the success of the future generation of cardiothoracic surgeons.
Through the easy-to-use mentorship portal, provide your contact information and notate your practice type and areas of interest (e.g., practice building, clinical research, contract negotiations) so that we can better find the best mentor/mentee match!
