Being a Mentor

Being a good mentor for someone else can be a very rewarding and also informative experience. Your mentee may be a high school student thinking about a career in health care or a senior faculty member planning a mid-career move. Just as being a teacher can make you a better student, serving as a mentor can improve your own experience as a mentee. As a mentor, you have the opportunity to formally consider both sides of a good mentor-mentee relationship.
