STN Leadership Extern Guide for Success

STN’s Leadership Externship is a great opportunity to be an aspiring leader in our trauma community. It is an exciting time to network and build lifelong relationship with trauma experts. This document is a guide to a successful year for the STN Leadership Extern.

Step 1

The Extern will be assigned an experienced Mentor. Your mentor will call or e-mail you to begin the process.

Step 2

The Extern mentor will arrange monthly phone conference meetings to discuss your barriers & successes. The mentors will arrange:
  • Shadowing experiences at STN headquarters
  • 1:1 meetings with leaders during STN Trauma Con
  • Help identify 1-2 projects/goals for 2017
  • Facilitate joining in special interest groups (SIGs) with STN
  • Assist with opportunities to write an article for JTN with STN leadership committee member

Step 3

We would like to invite The Extern to be the mentor for the 2018 STN Leadership Extern. Your experience will be invaluable to the new aspiring leader.
