Mentorship is not only for students

  • What does your career track look like 5 and 10 years in the future? Connect with a mentor in your field.
  • Just started a fellowship? Find an advisor to help you navigate a pathway.
  • Want to switch career tracks and explore a new area? Select a mentor with experience in your target field.
  • Looking for guidance as a woman rising in the ranks? Share your questions and concerns with another woman informatician leader.
  • Struggling in your Primary Investigator role? Zero in on another successful PI’s experience.
  • Making the leap from academia to industry? Discuss the challenges and opportunities with a mentor who has followed the same path.
  • Alone in your workplace as the ONLY informatician? Find a mentor buddy who can advise you on your internal challenges (and actually knows what you are talking about).
  • Battling internal politics with people who don’t know much about informatics? Learn how to get buy-in from someone who has been there, done that.
  • Wondering whether going back to school for more education will help you advance? Talk it out with someone who returned to school after years in the workplace.
  • Trying to move from informatician to an executive role? Explore how to pivot and move from “the data person” to “leadership track”
  • New to informatics and AMIA and need some guidance on where to start? Chat with a 1-5 year member who knows what the new member experience is like.
