Purpose of the Mentorship Program
The purpose of the UIW MHA mentorship program is to provide a nurturing, goal-oriented, professional relationship between UIW MHA students and interested, well suited, local healthcare professionals.
Mentorship Program Process
MHA core faculty are assigned individual students upon matriculation into the program and serve as their academic mentors. Within this roll, faculty get to know the students and prepare them so that they may take full advantage of the mentorship experience. Specifically, faculty:
Students enter into the mentoring relationship upon conclusion of their first academic year (end of the spring semester). Potential mentors are identified by healthcare organization CEO's. As determined by the nominating organization's CEO, mentors are then oriented to the mentorship process. UIW MHA leadership matches mentors and students for "best fit." Students remain as mentees for one year, officially concluding the program upon their graduation.
