The ROAAOMS Women in OMS Mentor Program is offered by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) in an effort to increase the number of female oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the country. Mentors are matched with mentees who are pre-dental or dental students and mentors are expected to give advice and answer questions about the residency application process, career development, and special interests such as strategies for applying with a lower CBSE, being a racial minority, or being foreign-trained. Mentor/mentee applications are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed at three points in the year.
