Young physician news

Dr. Tamara G. HelferTamara G. Helfer, MD, District VI young physician

The Third Annual Young Physician Luncheon was held during the 2012 Annual District Meeting. The luncheon focused on mentorship, providing opportunities for young physicians to meet with potential mentors from Districts VI, VIII, and IX. There was an excellent turnout of mentors and mentees.

The District VI mentorship program was also unveiled at this meeting. More information will be available on the District VI website. Please sign up if you would like to be a mentor or mentee. At the national level, young physicians sent out a survey recently to find out what young physicians are looking for in a mentor. We would appreciate you letting us know your thoughts.  

The Ninth Annual ACOG Young Physician Forum is scheduled for Tuesday, May 7, at the Annual Clinical Meeting in New Orleans. Save the date!
