GFA Mentoring Circles

The GFA Mentoring Circle Program for new members officially launched at our 2014 Professional Development Conference in Boston. The goal of this program is to provide a longitudinal mentoring experience that ensures every new GFA member is welcomed, linked with GFA Resources and rapidly integrated into the GFA community. The purpose of this program is to ensure that new GFA members are connected to the GFA/AAMC and its resources, and become integrated within the organization.
