Mentoring at ACR 2020


After the overwhelming success of the ACR Annual Meeting Mentoring Program piloted in 2019, we will once again facilitate mentoring relationships in advance of and during the annual meeting. By selecting YES during the registration process, you can opt-in either to be a mentor or to be paired with an experienced meeting attendee.

As a mentor, you are expected to communicate with your mentee in advance of the meeting and help him/her navigate their participation in various aspects of the meeting. As a mentee, you can expect to have someone to help answer questions and possibly shadow throughout the meeting. Although no one will be excluded from participating, please keep in mind that this program is intended for first-time attendees.

Childcare at ACR 2020
