Purpose of Mentorship:

We believe mentoring takes place when a person senses a need for growth and seeks to learn from someone. At their best, mentors will walk alongside you and God to provide wisdom, shape your character, and nurture your soul. Our desire is to help you find someone who can assist you in your vocational and spiritual development.

Glen Brindley's Example:

Glen Brindley was an active member and supporter of the COS since its foundation. With his passing in 2018, we remember his professional and spiritual impact on so many ophthalmologists that he mentored throughout his career. 

The Bible gives many examples of mentoring relationships, illustrating the importance of sharing what you know with someone else. Jesus Himself demonstrated this throughout His ministry with His disciples. Within our profession, it is important that we demonstrate the qualities of servant leadership, transparency, humbleness and faithfulness to each other and the younger generation.  Dr. Brindley encouraged ophthalmologists to not only excel professionally, but he equally encouraged them to become better spouses and followers of Christ. Glen was an incredible example of what it means to be a mentor.

How the Program Works:  After expressing an interest in the program, we will send you a questionnaire and one of the mentorship directors will follow up with a phone call at your convenience.  Getting to know more about you will help us make a good mentor-mentee match.  Then, through prayerful consideration, we will pair you with another ophthalmologist.

We encourage you to meet monthly by phone or video call for about an hour. Monthly material to discuss will be provided through the program; however, you are free to walk through a Bible-based study together or pick another agreed upon topic..
