MENTORING

Mentoring, advising, and nurturing students is a continual process as they matriculate through the doctor of pharmacy program. This process must include and have the commitment of various individuals within the college of pharmacy faculty and administration. An important objective is to create a long and lasting relationship between the student and the college which will extend beyond graduation. An important feature of this process is for each student to create a dynamic and evolving strategy, e.g., plan of study, career planning, toward accomplishing development objectives while in the program and beyond. The college stands ready to assist its students and alumni as they evaluate and re-evaluate their career goals and achievements while providing support to achieve their goals.

Develop a mentoring/advising program for doctor of pharmacy students anchored toward professionalism and socialization into the profession of pharmacy. The Office of the Associate Dean for Professional Development in conjunction with key, fellow college of pharmacy individuals and administrators will provide a cohesive approach to achieve this goal. The objectives of the program are as follows:

convene focus groups of enrolled students by class to identify student mentoring/advising needs
• develop a needs assessment survey for doctor of pharmacy students
• solicit from faculty/alumni/friends of the college interest in becoming a student mentor/advisor
• conduct a mentor workshop outlining the role and responsibilities of being a mentor
• develop a process to match a student with a mentor
• create various strategies to complement the mentor/mentee relationship
