A mentor is a caring and patient well-respected clinician with vast experience who devotes their time to nurture a younger colleague.

A mentor may perform numerous functions including:

  • Teaching the mentee about a specific issue
  • Coaching the mentee on a particular skill
  • Facilitating the mentee’s growth by sharing resources and networks
  • Challenging the mentee to move beyond his or her comfort zone
  • Creating a safe learning environment
  • Focusing on the mentee’s total development
