Thoughts on Mentoring from our Nth Scholars
Having good mentors is essential to navigating the competitive application process for Orthopaedic Surgery residency.
Mentors can share with you the nuisances of where to apply, where to rotate and how to conduct yourself on rotations and during interviews.
Mentors also share valuable life lessons that, if followed, will allow you to become not only a better surgeon but a better person for your family and friends.

Mentorship has been absolutely vital for me in my pursuit of such a competitive specialty since I'm coming from a medical school without a home orthopaedics program.
Dr. Erika Gantt at OrthoCarolina has been both an inspiring role model and advocate throughout my medical education. Beyond her dedication to mentoring me while I was an Nth Dimensions Summer Intern, she has stayed in contact through the years to offer advice and encouragement.
My mentors, such as Dr. Gantt, have given me a sense of direction and fueled my enthusiasm and passion for orthopaedics.
