SUSS is very excited to be launching its surgical mentoring program.
After a great deal of teamwork by the SUSS Council, SUSS has developed a pilot program in which senior Sydney Medical Program students are matched with surgeons at their clinical school for a 12 month period beginning in the first half of 2017.
We are grateful for the assistance of the senior Sydney Medical School faculty, clinical school staff, and surgeons who have provided support and advice to make this program a reality.
Please revisit this page soon for updates from the first group of mentees on their mentorship experience, and for more information on how SMP students can apply to the mentorship program in the future.
In the meantime, please download SUSS’ Mentorship Guide for reading on the philosophy of the program and why mentorship is so important for a surgical career.
