PROPEL: Professional Resource Opportunities in PRS Education and Leadership

PROPEL is a mentorship program that brings together teams of plastic surgeons at varying points in their careers to foster greater collaboration and a meaningful mentorship experience. Teams consist of a senior and mid- to early-career plastic surgeon, as well as a senior and junior plastic surgery resident, and are curated based on individual preferences and interests. The goal of each group is to build relationships and create a continuum of learning opportunities that reflects the vast, yet overlapping experiences between faculty members and trainees in a longitudinal fashion, offering participants the opportunity to serve as both a mentor and a mentee.
