The AHRA mentor program was developed as part of the organization’s mission to be a resource and catalyst for the development of professional leadership in medical imaging management. In doing so, it is our hope that AHRA and its members will continue to be a driving force toward improving the healthcare environment.
The goal of the program is to bring members together for professional development by connecting those who have certain areas of expertise with those who are looking to broaden their skills and knowledge. The goals of both the mentor and mentee should ultimately be to strengthen the future of medical imaging management by empowering the individual.
Member Guide to the AHRA Mentor Program Application
How does the program work?
Interested volunteers, both mentors and mentees, fill out an online application which is used, in turn, to create suitable matches. The outcome of the relationship is expected to benefit both parties for personal growth, career development, lifestyle enhancement, goal achievement, and other areas mutually agreed upon. Both mentoring and reverse mentoring are offered. When you are matched, you will be contacted by AHRA staff with your partner’s name and contact information. The matching process is based on availability. Not all applicants will be matched right away.
In a traditional mentoring relationship, younger people benefit from older mentors who can transfer their accumulated knowledge and expertise. Mentoring is typically focused on interpersonal support, guidance, mutual exchange, sharing of wisdom, coaching, and role modeling.
About reverse mentoring:
In a reverse mentoring relationship, the mentor is typically less senior than the mentee, who is usually well-established within a position and the industry. Most commonly, the mentor can share knowledge on technology, trends, diversity, and global issues.
