Neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Thomas works as a neurosurgical spine doctor at the Advanced Orthopedic Institute, one of the country’s leading orthopedic spinal practices. In addition to his duties as a neurosurgeon for the Sea Spine Orthopedic Institute, Dr. Michael Thomas maintains affiliation with the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACOS). The organization supports ongoing medical education through its ACOS Mentor Match Program.
A mentoring resource designed to provide students, residents, and new surgeons-in-practice with a yearlong mentoring experience from seasoned medical professionals already established in their disciplines. The program serves as a matching service that pairs students, residents, and new surgeons with mentors who will share their knowledge and contribute toward the future of the osteopathic surgical community. Mentees and mentors are matched according to compatibility, and pairings may vary according to the number of registrations submitted. Furthermore, the scope of mentoring will depend upon arrangements made between mentor and mentee. Mentoring sessions can consist of phone calls, emails, or in-person meetings.
