Foundation Programs Promote Mentorship


“The story of successful research may be told by one’s research family tree – our mentors and our supporters who make a profound impact on our career.”   Joe Hurt, MD, PhD (2015-2018 SMFM/AAOGF Scholar)

In 2018, we conducted a survey on the mentorship experiences of past recipients of our programs: SMFM/AAOGF Scholarship, Bridge Funding Award, Garite Mini-Sabbatical Grants, Queenan Global Health Awards, and Resident Scholars.
