The IPA Mentorship Program will encourage development of strong Mentor-Mentee relationships between volunteer mentor pharmacists in diverse practice settings and mentees at varying levels of realization of a Pharmacy career. The program goal is to benefit the mentee by providing a practicing Pharmacist Role Model and to benefit Mentor Pharmacists by providing an opportunity to nurture future Pharmacists.
The Coordinator pairs each Mentee with an appropriate Mentor and provides the structure under which this program operates. They are also responsible for receiving feedback from each of them and providing resources for conflict resolution, training and development. The Mentee drives the program by communicating his/her goals and challenges to the Mentor. The Mentor works with the Mentee to identify goals, acts as a role model and provides feedback to keep the program on track.
