Vancouver Island Mentorship

Mentorship programs at the chapter level are designed to help students and early leaders build the skills they need to become visible health leaders in their own local communities. Mentorship also provides senior leaders with the opportunity to share their knowledge and contribute to the health system. Information about the Vancouver Island mentorship program can be found below. To access the mentorship matching tool, visit the College's National Mentorship Portal . You must be logged in as a member to use the portal. 

 

Vancouver Island Chapter
Mentorship Program
October 2017 - June 2018


We will be encouraging participants to think differently about the positive benefits achieved through mentorship. Rather than focusing solely on mentors vs. mentees we will be encouraging mentoring pairs and partnerships. This will allow you to connect with someone from a different organization or area of focus to build a greater understanding of the shared successes and challenges we face in healthcare.

  1. Decide whether you want to be a mentor, mentee or both. Mentee’s and Mentors do not need to be college members – though it is encouraged.   
    * There are many benefits of becoming a college member (click here for more information ). If you are interested in becoming a college member please complete the online application form .

  2. Decide how much time you can give to the mentorship process. In general, we have found that a meaningful mentorship experience is supported by an average time commitment of 1-2 hours per month. The program also provides three 2 hour in-person engagement sessions with a guest speaker, food, and refreshments.

  3. Complete the online application form on or before Friday, September 15th, 2017.


Applications will be carefully reviewed by the Mentorship Committee and matching will be based on mentorship experience, leadership experience, availability, and mentorship goals. CCHL members will receive preference followed by non-members regardless of employer.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the CCHL Mentorship Committee at: amiller@doctorsofbc.ca
