How did your mentors help you?

"Strong mentorship is invaluable in a career in healthcare. I learned this early on at MUSC, where I had the opportunity to work with amazing mentors who introduced me to Med-Peds and pediatric cardiology. My mentors have helped me achieve my goals and become a better physician. I strive to be a mentor to trainees in the future as I progress in my career."
