The effects of mentorship on measurable outcomes of success and the aspects of mentorship that are most valuable in promoting the careers of cardiologists are unclear. To address this, we conducted a large-scale survey of cardiologists in a real-world setting. We identified factors that enhance the mentorship experience, and found that mentee needs change with career stage. Importantly, satisfaction with the mentoring relationship is significantly associated with perceived satisfaction in achieving professional goals. Furthermore, we found that gender and race concordance in mentoring relationships is an important variable with the potential to increase diversity in the field of cardiology.
