Mentorship Program

Mentorship Program Overview

After a successful inaugural year in 2021, NCHL is kicking off the second year of our MENTORSHIP PROGRAM. This initiative is for healthcare professionals seeking leadership and mentorship opportunities.

 

There is no fee for NCHL members to submit an application or participate in this program. This benefit is accessible to all NCHL members.

 

Please submit an application if you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee.

 As of March 1, 2022, applications are no longer being accepted for the 2022 cycle. Applicants who submitted an application will be notified of their status by the end of March.

Timeline

February 9 – 25, 2022: Application window

February 25, 2022: Application deadline 

Late March: Mentors and Mentees will be matched and notified. 

April – November: The mentorship program is expected to formally commence the last week in March and conclude in November 2022. The commitment is for 8 months in total. On average, each mentor/mentee spends 1-2 hours per month connecting.

Program Objectives

Bring together professionals pursuing careers in healthcare

Develop and hone new skills to foster career development

Create mentor-mentee relationship with experienced industry executives to create a collaborative learning environment

Mentor & Mentee Expectations

A Code of Conduct is available for review in the application. Please read through it. If matched, both mentors and mentees agree and sign the Code of Conduct. Additionally, each match is encouraged to have a conversation about their individual expectations and how to appropriately hold one another accountable. 

 

NCHL's Role

Collect – NCHL will solicit and review applications from prospective mentors and mentees.

Match – As able, NCHL will match all eligible mentors and mentees based on application questions including professional experience, skills, development objectives/goals/, location (if relevant), etc.
Please note, that while our goal is to match as many applicants as possible, we are limited by the number of mentors available.

Connect – NCHL will facilitate the initial connection between mentors and mentees to assure a smooth introduction. Mentors and mentees take it from there.

Evaluate – As an initiative of NCHL, we have a responsibility to assure this programming is effective and meaningful to our members. Therefore, we are committed to evaluating the program mid-cycle and at the conclusion. Additionally, we welcome direct feedback from participants throughout the program.
