MENTORS

" I have been extremely lucky to have extraordinary mentors in my professional life.  The best of the best- surgeons, physicians and scientists, pioneers in the field of transplantation and hernia repair. They continuously inspire me to work hard, keep improving, keep looking for answers and share my experience with others. They have  all helped me by opening doors to the next step of my career and personal life. They have been guiding me throughout my life. I am very thankful to my mentors for all that they have done for me. Now, I give back by mentoring new young physicians and researchers in their professional lives. "

One of the most skillful and bright surgeon, expert in thoracic and general surgery in Poland. Professor Dybicki was the first one who gave me a chance to become a surgeon and scientist. He selected me to join his team of extraordinary surgeons as a categorical resident resident. 

"Clearly, I have been very fortunate in my professional life. I was so lucky to have a chance to work with extraordinary mentors, pioneers in the field, not only outstanding surgeons and leaders but also fantastic teachers eager to share their experience and wisdom. I owe all of them a lot, as giving me a chance, they inspired me to work hard and helped take my professional and personal life to the highest level.  

Now, I have been trying to give back by training and mentoring many young physicians and researchers approaching me for help, giving them a chance to be even more successful."

Thank you all.
