I read with interest the study by Freeman et al1 that identified an association between resident training satisfaction and having a mentor. It was interesting that a small proportion of the surveyed dermatology residents either did not have a mentor or were not satisfied with the quality or availability of current mentors. Training programs must develop strategies to address the mentoring needs of these resident subgroups.
