Mentorship Program

The Society for Education in Anesthesia is dedicated in Supporting, Enriching, and Advancing anesthesia education and those who teach. This program will recruit SEA members to serve as mentors for other SEA members to assist in developing their educational skills, to provide guidance to navigate the waters when assuming a new role in an academic institution, and to support each other in reaching their full potential (e.g., attaining a leadership role, getting promoted).

Find below mentor profiles to guide you in choosing a mentor (some mentors may have limited availability due to other responsibilities; please be respectful of their voluntary time and effort dedicated to this program).
