Matrix Mentorship Program

If you are a female GI fellow or an early-mid career female gastroenterologist, looking to define and advance your career in GI, this unique and innovative Mentorship Program is for you!

At Scrubs & Heels, we have created our MATRIX MENTORSHIP PROGRAM that aligns with our vision of providing 360⁰ support and resources to women in GI, so they achieve their full potential and a successful and rewarding career in GI, well integrated with their personal life and values.

Selected mentees will be provided with mentorship, sponsorship, as well as professional coaching during the course of one year, and engage with leaders from academia and private practice, women in GI and male allies, and a professional coach. This carefully selected mentorship board will help mentees define their career goals and design a roadmap to reach near and intermediate professional and personal goals and growth.


In addition, the selected mentees will be awarded a registration and travel stipend up to $1,000 to attend the Scrubs & Heels Summit 2023.

The ultimate goal of our MATRIX MENTORSHIP PROGRAM is to foster long-lasting relationships between mentors and mentees beyond the completion of this program, so mentees continue to gain valuable guidance and career advice from their mentors throughout their GI journey.


The MATRIX MENTORSHIP PROGRAM was made possible with the support of Janssen Immunology.
