Dear Pride Ortho Members,

We are excited to initiate our formal mentoring program! It will include both one-on-one as well as group mentoring opportunities. Our goal is to pair mentors with mentees for a year-long formal mentoring relationship, with the understanding that some of these relationships may extend beyond the single year. In order for us to pair people appropriately, we ask that you complete either the mentee or mentor application (or both) depending on your goals, skills, and abilities.

Mentee Application: https://form.jotform.com/222435263172046

Mentor Application: https://form.jotform.com/222436490780256

See below the curated list of suggested books and papers that could be included in your program with your mentor/mentee.

Thank you in advance to our volunteer mentors! We look forward to working with everyone to create a mutually beneficial mentoring program!

Sincerely,

Mentorship Committee
