Early Careerist Network
- The program matches senior healthcare executive mentors with early careerists for a formal period of one year (with cohorts starting March and September of each year). Relationships may continue beyond the year in an informal manner at the discretion of the participants.
- Mentors and early careerists will be matched according to similar interests based on details provided in the Mentor Questionnaire and the Early Careerist Questionnaire. The committee will attempt to accommodate preferences, however due to the nature of the program, participants may need to be flexible about their mentor/mentee match.
- Once matched, early careerists will be responsible for reaching out and establishing the first contact with the mentors. Early careerists are also responsible for preparing an agenda in advance of each conversation so as to make the best use of their mentor’s and their own time and to keep the relationship on track and productive.
- At the beginning of the relationship, the mentor and early careerist should discuss and agree upon the frequency of contact and the preferred method (i.e. via phone call, in person, ad hoc, etc.), as well as outline goals for the relationship.
- At the closure of formal partnership, the early careerist and mentor should evaluate whether the goals that were outlined at the beginning of the relationship were achieved.
- During and at the end of the year, the Early Careerist Mentoring Program committee will solicit feedback on the mentorship matches and opportunities for program improvements.
