A Focus on our Junior Faculty and Trainees


This month, we focus on our Junior Faculty and Trainee Council which simply embodies what we do with our knowledge in the ISHLT. We experience it, observe it, organize it, analyze it, simplify it, describe it, ruin it, and cultivate it. In time, we recognize and reason with the dos and don'ts. We realize in the end there are more don'ts than dos, but rest assured mistakes provide the best opportunities. Regardless, there are dilemmas, travels, rest, reflection, hard work, awards, celebration, drinking, linking and what matters most.

Named in honor of the Roman God of War, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. In this third month, we have the Ides of March, St Patrick's Day, sometimes Easter, and of course the vernal equinox, just to name a few milestones. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, spring begins anew with flowers, weeds and grass. With grass we take note of the varieties of grass and can water it, aerate it, thatch it, edge it, groom it, smell it, mulch it, compost it, chew it, eat it, paint it, stain it, spread it, change it, feed it, kill it, smoke it, sell it, and grow it. But for many of us we must mow it. Happy mowing and enjoy our grandsons, Devin and Dylan.

spotlight SPOTLIGHT on the ISHLT Mentorship Program

The goal of the ISHLT Mentorship Program is to provide an opportunity for junior faculty and trainees to meet with an established specialist in their field of interest. Our hope is that this interaction will foster communication and guidance, and provide an opportunity for academic career enrichment. Detailed information on how to participate in this program will be sent to all members via email this month, so be on the lookout!
