Effective Mentoring in Orthopaedics РThis self-paced, five-part series introduces critical concepts and techniques for becoming an effective mentor. Effective mentorship plays a critical role in the growth and development of both the mentee and the mentor. Surgeons typically are not formally prepared for, or trained in mentorship. According to the results of a survey published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (2009), nearly all surveyed residents thought that mentors were critical to their career, research, and education; however, only 17% were highly satisfied with their mentoring relationship. Institutions without effective mentoring programs in place are missing key opportunities that lead to well-developed professionals and successful succession planning. Authors: Stephen A.
