"Mentoring is not only important to the growth of our field, it is essential. I have been the recipient of great mentoring by many leaders in the field of endoscopy including Jacques Van Dam, David Carr-Locke, Robert Hawes, and Peter Cotton, and countless others. Ultimately it is really our mentees and students that are our teachers as they challenge us to think critically about what we know and what we do. I thank the ASGE for recognizing the importance of mentoring and thank all of those, mentors and mentees for being part of the great advancement of endoscopy.”
Richard C.K. Wong, MD, FASGE

Sivak, Jr. I would also like to thank the many mentees who have allowed me to mentor them – mentoring is an important and distinct privilege that has to be earned – I am proud of what they have accomplished and I wish them the very best in their future careers.”
