AANP Mentorship Network

Date(s): July 1, 2013

Time: All Day

Join the AANP Mentorship Network, Reap All the Benefits of Being a Mentor

  • Ignite a spark
  • Create a legacy
  • Build your leadership and management skills
Mentors are rewarded by sharing clinical knowledge and skills, helping others succeed, and supporting the profession. All you need is a passion for the profession and a willingness to spend a couple hours per month developing a relationship with a student or new graduate.
Mentoring requires a willingness to share, listen, and provide advice in a flexible relationship shaped by the needs of the mentee. Mentoring is a way for every professional to improve the naturopathic medical field, one person at a time. While mentoring programs are designed primarily for the benefit of mentees, mentors enjoy rewards as well. Including:
  • Exposure to the emerging talent pool
  • Ongoing attention to your own career development
  • The satisfaction of imparting wisdom and experience to others without a huge time commitment
  • Enhancement of coaching, leadership, management, and recruiting skills
  • Exposure to diverse thoughts, styles, personalities, and cultures
  • Opportunities for recruitment to your employment setting
  • A way to give back to the association and the profession
  • A lasting career network

Are You Ready to be a Mentor?

If you can answer, "YES" to most of the following statements, you are a great candidate to be a mentor.
  • I will make a personal connection based on trust and mutual respect and listen to my mentee's needs and concerns.
  • I will help my mentee to define career goals and provide networking opportunities to attain those goals.
  • I will share my knowledge of educational and professional requirements to prepare my mentee for his/her career.
  • I will offer information, advice, references, and resources to assist my mentee's needs.
  • I will offer constructive criticism, but allow my mentee to learn from his or her mistakes.

Mentorship Network Process, Pairing and Termination

After you complete the registration form, your name will be added to a database that will be made available to our student members. Students will contact you based on their own volitions. Once contacted, you and the student will work out the details of your relationship. If at any time you decide that you no longer want your name in the database, please email us at communications@naturopathic.org, and your name will be removed from the network.
