New Practitioners Mentorship Program

VPhA would like to personally invite you to be a part of the VPhA New Practitioners Mentorship Program.  The purpose of this program is to provide new practitioners a mentor who has been designated as a leader and mentor in the field of pharmacy. The mentorship program will provide participants opportunities to network with other mentors and mentees, as well as obtain new ideas and perspectives on the current state of pharmacy.

Participants are matched with a mentor/mentee for the year. As a mentor/mentee, participants are expected to contact/meet with your mentee/mentor at least quarterly, although meeting times and frequencies are determined by you and your mentor/mentee. You are encouraged to continue the mentorship indefinitely. However, either member may request a new mentor/mentee next year for any reason.

To identify the mentor/mentee that most closely matches you, a Mentorship Information Form would need to be completed. Mentors and mentees are matched based on common interests, field of pharmacy, preference of communication, location, availability, and expectations.

If you are interested in participating in our New Practitioners Mentorship Program, please complete the online form at: Mentorship Information Form.
