Hi everyone! Welcome to our student-produced podcast, Mentor Spotlight!
We are Manasa Veluvolu, Weijia Shi, Hannah Hubbard and Jasmin Cotoco, medical students here at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. What is Mentor Spotlight? Well, it is a podcast designed for students at our school to connect with faculty mentors you might not know about otherwise who can guide you during your career path. It was started because we all know the struggle of trying to find mentors when:
- You’re an M1 and you didn’t even know you needed one.
- You’re an M2 and drowning in house lectures and Step prep.
- You’re an M3 and just trying to survive the rotations with Step 2 coming up.
- You’re an M4, when you finally figured out what you want to do but that residency application is due in two months or less…
Don’t panic! We hope this podcast can help you find the right people to connect with! We, along with periodic guest hosts, will be talking to different UAMS/ACH/VA faculty about their career journeys, hobbies, and advice they live by. Our conversations will give you a peek into the diversity available within medicine – whether that be the career pathways you can create, the different personalities within a field, or even the specialities you can choose from and how to integrate your passions into them. We are super excited to get this podcast going! In our first episode, we will be talking with renowned EP cardiologist, Dr. Paydak. We hope you join us!
