Perhaps you're a student about to enter the work force? Or, maybe you're contemplating a job change?

You may be looking for a mentor to help ease your transition.

Even if change is not on the horizon, mentorship can help you grow, develop new skills, or provide exposure to new opportunities and ideas. We all spent years preparing for our careers as veterinarians. We owe it to ourselves to devote time and energy to developing ourselves and to making the most of our careers. Mentorship is one important way we can do just this.

Whether you're seeking mentorship or are interested in serving as a mentor (or, ideally, both!), this webinar is for you. It will help you be sure you are making the most of mentoring.

After participating in this webinar, you will understand the role of the mentor and the mentee in the mentoring relationship. You will learn tips for:

  1. Developing a vision plan
  2. Discussing mentorship as part of the hiring process
  3. Approaching the mentoring relationship at the start
  4. Setting SMART goals
  5. Keeping the mentoring relationship going

Specific mentoring activities for the veterinary practice will be reviewed.
