CAHL Mentor Program 

The CAHL Mentor Program provides a structure for healthcare professional development where mentees are matched with seasoned professionals to enhance their current skills, knowledge, and education. Mentor Program provides support and resources for our members at all stages of their careers – the early to mid-careerist, senior-level executive, and those in transition. It is a relationship based on trust and mutual respect in which both the mentor and the mentee have responsibilities and should benefit from the relationship.

Mentors and mentees are matched based on a multitude of criteria including career level, business function, leadership skills and competencies, and career development goals. Also, Mentors receive four ACHE self-reported volunteer service points per Mentor cohort (approximately 6 months) of service.
