After a successful inaugural year in 2022, NCHL is kicking off the third year of our MENTORSHIP PROGRAM in 2023. 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. Applications for the 2023 cycle is now closed and applicants will be notified by the end of March.
January 27 – March 2, 2023: Application window
March 3, 2023: Application deadline
No later than March 28, 2023: Mentors and Mentees will be matched and notified.
Late March – November: The mentorship program is expected to formally commence mid-March and conclude in November 2023. The commitment is for 8 months in total. On average, each mentor/mentee spends 1-2 hours per month connecting.
A Code of Conduct is available here for review. Applicants will sign off on the code when subitting their 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.
The NCHL team works to match applicants based on skills, needs, and interests. Previous matches include:
Administrative Fellow (Mentee) and CEO (Mentor)
Senior Director of Learning & Development (Mentee) and CEO (Mentor)
Head of Healthcare Consulting (Mentor) and Senior Operations Coordinator (Mentee)
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.
