Mentorship Program

Welcome to the NAMS Mentorship Program. This exciting, unique opportunity matches an expert Mentor with a Mentee for a 2-year collaboration based on mutual research interests. The outcomes are a research project disseminated as a poster at the NAMS Annual Meeting and submission of a research paper to a peer-reviewed journal. The program is open to NAMS members living in North America.

The Mentorship Program is the quintessential realization of the NAMS Mission: “To promote the health and quality of life of all women through an understanding of menopause and healthy aging.”

The goals of the program are to:

  • Encourage career development of menopause practitioners and junior researchers
  • Enhance the NAMS goal to advance menopause research in North America
  • Provide a measurable benefit of NAMS membership

My mentor has been a source of inspiration, providing me with a sense of passion and unparalleled curiosity for biological processes that will follow me the rest of my career. I am grateful to NAMS for this once-in-a-lifetime
                                  opportunity.

The opportunity to serve as a NAMS mentor is a privilege and pleasure. I have been especially fortunate to work with two outstanding mentees with the brightest of scientific futures. This wonderful program is a win-win-win for mentees, mentors, and NAMS.
