Mentorship Day Paves Road for Future Healthcare Professionals
Armenian American Medical Society members take an active role in mentoring Armenian medical students and residents. The Armenian American Medical Society mentorship program gives young Armenian medical students, residents, and fellows access to a broad spectrum of Armenian physicians and healthcare practitioners who provide valuable guidance and advice throughout their training and as they choose their medical specialty.
The AAMS Mentorship and Career Development Event connects medical and other healthcare-related students, residents, and fellows with mentors to help them navigate school preparations as well as guide them in employment opportunities.
The Armenian American Medical Society (AAMS) held its annual Mentorship Day event on Saturday, March 11, and Saturday, March 18, 2023. These events were an opportunity to develop and support the best and brightest young medical professionals.
Through this program, members of the AAMS take an active role in mentoring Armenian medical students and residents, giving them access to a broad spectrum of Armenian physicians and healthcare practitioners who provide valuable guidance and advice throughout their training and as they choose their medical specialty.
