Mentorship Program 2017-2018
BYHP’s Mentorship Program supports the organization’s mission to “connect emerging and passionate healthcare professionals in the Greater Boston area to develop strong cross-sector relationships and build knowledge across all healthcare fields.” The Program seeks to build mutually beneficial relationships between established mid-to-senior level professionals and early to mid-career professionals or graduate students. Mid-career professionals may apply to be a mentor and/or a mentee depending on their interests and availability. Mentors and mentees will be matched by the BYHP Leadership Team based on their career fields. For example, a mentee who is pursuing a master’s degree in health policy might be matched with a mentor who is a healthcare lobbyist. Mentors and mentees must meet at least once every two months over a six-month period to encourage regular communication and relationship building.
For Program purposes, different levels of professional experience are defined as follows:
