Early Career Mentorship Program
Share |

The CFHA Early Career Mentorship Program was established in 2014 in an effort to offer increased opportunity for professional development and one-to-one coaching for Early Career Professionals (ECPs) who are new to collaborative care in integrated settings and who are seeking support, consultation, and advice from leaders in the field. Support may be oriented to work in clinical roles, research, policy, or writing.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

From January to October 2018, mentors will volunteer their time to support Early Career Professionals.

Mentors have been identified by several of CFHA’s Special Interest Groups, including PCBH SIG, Pediatrics SIG, Medically Unexplained Symptoms SIG, Familes in Health SIG, and a general mentorship, not SIG specific.  Mentors and Early Career Fellows will share a monthly meeting, which will be facilitated via telephone, Skype, or in-person based on geographic distance. Meetings will support ECPs on a project of personal interest or exploration of a specific topic. Calls may support broader themes identified by the fellow and mentor that will enhance the ECP’s professional development, attainment of outlined goals, etc.

A ListServ or forum for ongoing conversation amongst fellows and mentors will be established for group consultation and information sharing.

At the outset of the mentoring relationship, fellows will establish individualized learning goals, including conceptualization of a potential project. At the conclusion of the mentorship year, each individual should be able to demonstrate progress toward the completion of these objectives. Fellows are encouraged to submit proposals to present a poster, Discussion Group, or talk at the 2018 CFHA conference*. Even if these projects are not completed, the goal of this program is to foster collaboration and mentorship, and any progress you make toward your project would be a reflection of this aim.

*No form of financial assistance or reimbursement will be offered to mentors or mentees. The next conference will be held in Rochester, NY from October 18-20, 2018.
