What is mentorship?
Mentorship in health care guides health career professionals who aspire to acquire new skills, information and further insight into their current field of interest. Mentorship typically involves one-to-one meetings between a mentor and mentee. The purpose of mentorship is to build confidence and provide guidance to the professional career development of the mentee.
What is flash mentoring?
Flash mentoring is one-time or short-term mentoring and is tailored to a specific group of like-minded mentees. It is centered around one-time meetings to provide knowledge or specific skills and to develop career and career mapping by building networks.
