Mentoring Program

APGNN has a professional mentoring program! Mentoring is an effective way to enhance professional development for anyone new to Pediatric Gastroenterology or looking to change to a new subspecialty within Pediatric Gastroenterology. This is accomplished through sharing experience, expertise, and knowledge. A successful mentoring relationship is built upon effective communication, respect and trust between the mentor and mentee.
