Find a Mentor: ConnectEd
We strive to enable Stanford Medicine faculty to form productive relationships regardless of their division or departmental affiliation or their physical location. In the expanding footprint of Stanford’s healthcare, we recognize the challenge of identifying mentors and collaborators. Stanford ConnectED is a newly developed app that addresses this gap; Stanford faculty can easily search and identify colleagues—to mentor, and to be mentored by, in an easy-to-use tool at their fingertips!
Thomas Caruso, Clinical Associate Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine has developed ConnectED, a mobile application using pre-existing Stanford Medicine academic profiles to serve as a platform for smart searching of students and faculty. Within the app, faculty have the opportunity to enhance their profile for more opportunities to connect with others. For example, faculty may identify themselves are available mentors, or mentees, in specific topic areas.
