It takes a village: Rheumatology trainees require multiple mentors, commitment
Excerpt from Healio
From the latter stages of medical school to the precarious steps involved in carving out a subspecialty, and throughout the turbulent transitions experienced by young physicians, the advice and guidance of mentors is often invaluable.
Although mentors are important figures for any developing professional, in medicine the presence of a strong role model has the potential to alter the path of the trainee’s entire career. As such, it is likely impossible to overstate the importance of the role mentors play in the professional lives of young physicians.
