The Mentorship Toolkit was developed with the veterinary economy, and job market, in mind. Its primary goal is to create implementable, customizable mentorship guidelines to address the following:
- Disparity between knowledge/skill base of new graduates and the knowledge/skills they need to be successful in today’s private practice environment
- Turnover amongst new graduates and its cost to practice owners
- The time it takes for new graduates to become productive in practice
- Lack of exit strategies for practice owners
The Mentorship Toolkit contains resources and support for a revised, detailed mentorship program to help recent graduates contribute, both financially and medically, to their new team. For a look inside the toolkit, please visit mentorship.aaha.org.
