This June, NANETS' Mentoring & Early Career Development Committee implemented a comprehensive mentoring program to match early career NANETS members with professionals in their respective fields. Committee Co-Chairs M. Sue O'Dorisio, MD, PhD and Callisia Clarke, MD, MS developed this program to advise mentees on best practices for navigating a career in the NET medical field.

All mentor and mentee matches are provided a comprehensive mentoring checklist developed by the Committee to help facilitate the mentorship relationship. Matches are also issued an Individual Mentoring Development Plan (IMDP) to advance the mentoring journey.

See the chart below for a comprehensive list of NANETS' 2021 mentorship matches.
