The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) provides a mentor program for new graduate fellows with the help of select sponsors, such as RSI.
United States (October 5, 2017) – With the goal of further educating and advancing new graduate fellows in the facial plastic surgery field, the AAFPRS created the Mentor 4 Success program. The AAFPRS,a National Medical Specialty Society of the American Medical Association (AMA), is comprised of over 2,500 facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons across the globe.
The AAFPRS Mentor 4 Success program commenced last year in 2016 — pairing new graduate fellows with senior mentors for a year. The focus of the program is to educate residents, fellows and new doctors in areas related to the challenges in practice management.
RSI is a proud sponsor of the AAFPRS Mentor 4 Success Program. The elective healthcare marketing company specializes in patient acquisition and retention, lead conversion, search engine optimization and technology for tracking and reporting return-on-investment.
Dr. Theda Kontis, Secretary-Elect of the AAFPRS and Director of Mentor 4 Success, commented, “We initiated the Mentor 4 Success program last year, and it was met with enthusiasm from those who participated. Unlike the relationship that many of the mentees had with their fellowship directors, this relationship is more focused on career-building, academic or private practice issues, advancement opportunities in the AAFPRS, and even personal and professional issues. The mentees and mentors felt it was a win-win experience for all involved. We see this as a yearly program to support our younger members as they begin their careers. We could not have held this program without the support of RSI.”
