Provide an opportunity for Chapter members, including undergraduate students, graduate students, early careerists, mid-careerists, and senior careerists, to take advantage of a paired match of mentor and mentee. This professional relationship will provide an invaluable educational and growth opportunity for the mentee and an avenue for the mentor to give back to our profession.
Participants (must be ACHE Members)
- Mentors: Mid- and senior careerists who are in good standing with the Chapter
- Mentees: Undergraduate students, graduate students, and early careerists who are in good standing with the Chapter
Previously, the committee had a yearly cutoff date for application to the mentorship program. To create greater access to the program, the committee has chosen to transition to continuous enrollment of both mentors and mentees. This means that at any time during the year, a prospective mentee or mentor can apply to the program. The committee will continue to pair mentors and mentees based on common interests, growth strategy, and geographic location. While there is no guarantee that mentees will be matched with a mentor, the committee will continually solicit Chapter members for participation. All mentor-mentee pairs will be formally assigned for a period of one year – after which the pair can continue informally on their own accord.
An assessment form will be sent to you to help us improve the program. The form will be sent to both individuals the month prior to the one year anniversary.
- Mentors: In addition to the satisfaction of aiding in the development of the next generation of healthcare executives, mentors also get points from ACHE National towards their service award level in the ACHE recognition program.
- Mentees: Have the opportunity to develop professionally by interacting with current healthcare executives.
“Serving as a mentor in the ACHE-SETC mentorship program has been a phenomenal experience. I believe that participation in this program create a win – win experience for both mentors and mentees. As a mentor I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to give back through investment in our early careerist while also gaining exposure to new and different perspectives and enhancement of my leadership skills. For my mentee it has been beautiful to witness her growth in the areas of self-confidence, self-reflection, expanded network, and leadership skills.”

“Participating in the ACHE-SETC mentorship program as a mentor has been a very rewarding experience. I am able to share my experiences and insight with other emerging leaders who are where I was many years ago, all filled with enthusiasm and potential. To be able to help guide them through their own journey and learn from each other brings a sense of accomplishment and joy to me. This is a valuable experience for any leader – emerging or seasoned – as we all continue on our own career journeys of service, growth, and achievement. I appreciate this opportunity by the ACHE-SETC!”
