Get involved in the NEW SABM MENTORSHIP PROGRAM and take your PBM program to a new level! Contrary to traditional mentoring, the SABM mentorship program houses a mentee in a ‘pod’ with two or more mentors. The Mentorship Program continues to connect SABM members with one another in supportive, mentoring relationships.
How does the Mentorship Program work?
While mentorship is traditionally formed as a 1:1 partnership, SABM offers a unique and exciting approach. The Program works to form small-groups or pods of Mentees with two or more Mentors, with attention to the needs, skill sets, georgraphical location, and more, of all participants. This ‘team-approach’ to Mentorship enables multiple perspectives for coaching, resources for questions, opportunities for networking, and much more. Mentorship pods are assigned for a duration of one year. After the introductory email, groups are encouraged to connect as soon as possible to begin developing their plans and goals for the year, including when and how to communicate (e.g., telephone calls, virtual meetings, emails, etc.). Whenever possible, all groups are encouraged to cap off their year with a special/joint project, and to try to meet in-person at the SABM Annual Meeting. After the year is complete, mentorship groups are encouraged to (and often do!) stay in touch to share successes and continue supporting the growth of Patient Blood Managment (PBM).
What are the benefits?
For “Mentees” the Program offers the opportunity to tackle professional development goals, access resources and develop greater expertise in the field of PBM, and more. By sharing their insights and experience, ‘Mentors’ find the opportunity to increase leadership skills, advance the field of PBM practice, and more.
