ACHE NJ Chapter is launching a Mentorship Program from September 2020 – June 2021 for NJ healthcare leaders who are currently employed in healthcare management positions. The goal of the Mentorship Program is to assist members in developing careers in the competitive world of healthcare administration, networking with other healthcare professionals, expanding knowledge of healthcare issues, and promoting the value of participation in The American College of Healthcare Executives.
The program is free of charge and open to ACHENJ regular members and administered by ACHENJ volunteer members. Due to the limited availability of volunteer mentors, the program is not open to ACHENJ student members at this time. For the first year of the program, eligible mentees include early careerists who are employed in healthcare administration and in the early stages of their healthcare career (typically under 5 years of professional experience) and interested in professional development. Eligible mentors include mid-careerist and senior executives who are healthcare managers, directors, or administrators with at least 2 to 5 years of experience and are interested in sharing their experiences and knowledge to assist with the development of early careerists. The program is not intended as an employment service for those seeking a position in healthcare administration.
