About the Program
The CPA Mentorship Program aims to provide career and leadership development opportunities for CPA members across all practice settings.
Whether you’re a seasoned pharmacist who wants to give back to the profession or a new practitioner looking for new tools and insight to advance in the profession, this is the right opportunity for you.
The 2020-2021 application process will remain open until October 14. Following the application deadline, mentors and mentees will be matched based on practice areas/clinical specialty and career interests.
Why become a mentor?
Mentoring is a great way to give back to the practice of pharmacy and share your professional insight and experiences with new practitioners, pharmacy residents and pharmacy fellows. By becoming a mentor, you’re shaping the future of pharmacy, helping new practitioners get one step closer to their career goals while advancing patient care.
Interested in becoming a mentor for the first time, but not sure where to start? No worries! CPA will provide all the tips you need to create a meaningful experience for your mentee.
Why become a mentee? Whether you’re a new practitioner, a pharmacy resident or fellow, becoming a mentee not only expands your professional network, but also equips you with the tools you need to advance in your profession. As a mentee, you will gain a wealth of insight and experience found in mentoring relationships from a variety of practice interest areas. From CV reviews to mock interviews and cover letter prep to setting career goals and achieving work/life balance, you will have access to a wide range of benefits as a mentee–while establishing lasting connections with your mentor.
How to apply: Mentors and mentees must be current members of CPA and be willing to actively participate in the mentorship program. Mentees must be a new practitioner (<1 year out of pharmacy school), a pharmacy resident or pharmacy fellow.
