by Robert P. Granacher, Jr., M.D., MBA
I am announcing that the Lexington Medical Society (LMS) will be initiating its new Medical Student Mentorship Program, in conjunction with the University of Kentucky, College of Medicine, during August 2017. We are asking as many LMS doctors as possible, or any other interested doctors in the Central Kentucky area, to provide a mentorship opportunity to our medical students. The first launch of this program will enable LMS to work out the bugs in the system.

The LMS-UK College of Medicine Mentorship Program: The How
By Chris Hickey, LMS, EVP/CE
The LMS mentorship program was designed with the busy lives of our physician mentors & medical student mentees in mind. Our program is centralized in its support & decentralized in its execution in that the mentor/mentee decide when, where, & how often they want to meet, write, or talk. The program starts August 2017 & culminates in May 2018. Our inaugural program focuses, based on the advice from the medical student leadership, on third year students as they transition from two years of academics to their clinical training & education.
