UReTER Mentor Expectations

All UReTER Mentors are expected to:

- Initiate contact within one week of receiving mentee match information.

- Meet with mentee at least two times a month via Zoom, phone, socially distanced masked walk, etc. 

 

Excellent Mentorship Strategies:

- Answer any application questions that mentees may have (ERAS, AUA match, interviewing)

- Offer to reach out to your Urology connections across the country on mentee’s behalf based on their geographical areas and institutions of interest

- Offer to proofread personal statements and share your own

- Share insight from your sub-internship experiences

- Practice interviewing over Zoom

- Share how you navigated the complicated process of choosing your rank list

- Career track guidance in the field 

 

SAU-AUA Match Policy

In accordance with the SAU-AUA Match Policy, resident/ fellow mentors may not tell applicants how they will be ranked in their respective programs. In addition, SAU prohibits all communication with any member of a program (students/residents/faculty/admins/etc.) after the interview. In order to avoid any match violations, communication between mentors and medical students must stop once a student has their first interview. In order to align with these match rules, we recommend that mentors be proactive with advising earlier on in the application cycle.
