The research sabbatical program of the Emory general surgery residency is designed to give residents the opportunity to learn from and interact with faculty role models engaged in cutting edge research. Departmental faculty who believe they have the resources and time to commit toward inspiring and developing the next generation of accomplished surgeon scientists are encouraged to apply to become a faculty mentor. By identifying people who proactively are seeking to be mentors, the sabbatical program can build a catalog of opportunities available to assist the residents in the decision making process.
Interested faculty should complete the online faculty mentor application, save it to their electronic files, and then email it as an attachment to Nena Buie at firstname.lastname@example.org. The applications are reviewed by Drs. Craig Coopersmith, Keith Delman, and Nicole Turgeon.
