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. 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.
