Find a Mentor
The Find a Mentor tool matches students with practicing health care professionals, who are making a difference in the next generation of health care by sharing their expertise.
- Students enter search criteria and get a list of registered users who match the criteria, and then send a message through IHI.org to invite users to consider their mentor requests.
- Mentors have the option to accept or decline requests from prospective student mentees.
- Mentorship can take on many different forms — whether that’s one-time career advice or monthly improvement project coaching — and that’s open for mentors and students to decide what is most appropriate.
- Use My Mentors and Mentees (in My IHI) to track your connections.
To use Find a Mentor, you must opt in for this feature in My IHI (select Edit My Profile and click the Personalization tab).
