The purpose of this study was to determine whether a need exists for mentorship programs among gastroenterology (GI) fellowship program directors (PDs), to investigate specific areas where mentoring would be helpful, and to assess the willingness to establish mentoring relationships. There is no research regarding mentorship for GI fellowship PDs or associate/assistant program directors (APDs). Although some mentoring resources currently exist, it is not clear whether they fulfill the needs of PDs and APDs. Mentorship needs were assessed using an electronic survey sent to GI PDs and APDs who subscribe to the American Gastroenterological Association PDs' list server.
