The goal of Wisconsin HFMA’s Mentorship program is to help provide early careerists or those who are new to healthcare with a support system to develop and grow in their professional career. Mentees are paired with mentors based on different factors to help compatibility. Once a mentor-mentee pair has been introduced, it will be up to the pair to determine the level and frequency of interaction to sustain their mentoring relationship.
According to the Merriam-Webster’s Learners Dictionary, to mentor is “to teach or give advice or guidance to someone, such as a less experienced person." In other words, a mentor is an experienced and trusted professional who offers a young or new healthcare professional the opportunity to enhance their learning experience in the world outside of their current roles. The process of mentoring allows the mentee to build knowledge, skills and abilities while attaining goals for career development. In turn, the process allows the mentor to enhance his or her own skills, proficiency and expertise by sharing in the development of a future professional.

HFMA Wisconsin will support those who want to meet in person at our events by providing discounted or free networking socials and annual meeting registration for active mentors and mentees.
