YPS Model Mentor Award

YPS Model Mentor Award

Having good a mentor is important to every phase of a physician's career, but perhaps never more critical than in the earliest years out of training. Recognizing the key role that expert mentorship plays in a young physician's success, the YPS has created the Model Mentor Award.

Any YPS member may nominate one of their mentors for this award by submitting a narrative vignette that illustrate an effective and nurturing mentorship by this physician. Application dates for 2021 will be announced later this year. 

Requirements:

- The nominees must be AAO-HNS members in good standing.

- The nomination packet requires full contact information for both the nominee and the nominating YPS member, as well as a nominating paragraph of up to 325 words.

- The YPS Governing Council will select the Model Mentor Award winners to be recognized during the YPS General Assembly at the AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO Experience and will consider the winning vignettes for submission to Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery.

- Please email your nomination to yps@entnet.org
