Finding a mentor is another key component on growing the career field. Why is this? It has a lot to do with improving self before others. We cannot expect the paramedic industry to function at a high level unless each individual holds themselves to the highest standard.
The problem is getting matched up with a mentor can be a convoluted and frustrating process. I always thought it would be helpful to have a central location where those looking to act as mentors and those looking for one could meet. This would take the guess-work out of looking for someone who is willing to act as a mentor. This is why The Paramedic Project is focused on developing a robust network of mentors and mentees. Join up and be part of developing the future of the industry!
As of this post, we are looking to build our list of mentors before taking on mentees. If you are interested in being a mentor, follow the below steps to get started:
- Go to the Contact Page and send an email expressing interest.
- In the email, state what your focus area is (research, leadership, clinical development, operational, business, etc.).
- List the number of mentees you are willing to take on.
- After you submit, you will receive a reply and be placed on a list of possible mentors.
*Note: This is a volunteer, unpaid position that will be providing a service to help form the future leaders, educators and clinicians of the prehospital industry.
