TITLE: Pediatric mentor available for Resident or Medical Student, Los Angeles
As a successful pediatrician with 15 years experience (the last 7 in my own practice) is available for mentoring up to two residents or medical students. I am available via email on a regular basis. I attended xyz medical school and had a baby during my third year. I had a second child during my second year of residency and know all about balancing career and family. I can offer guidance on selecting a specialty, interviewing, on the job experience with male colleagues!
You get the idea!!
Good luck and THANK YOU for offering your services.
Neurologist available for mentoring
I am a 33 year old mother of 3 married to a physician who has been out in private practice for 4 years and is willing to mentor 2 medical students or residents per year. I am available by email on a regular basis. I did my medical school at the University of Miami and my residency and fellowship at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. I had one child in residency, one in fellowship, and one while out in practice. I am not perfect at the “balancing act” but can tell you what has worked for me. 😉
