I do not remember any direct mentorship program besides the program within the Summer Internship Program that I was a part of last summer 2017. For this program, a group of us interns were given a large overarching project to work on, along with our regular job function. For this specific project, we were given a mentor to help us navigate this project and provided us with the necessary materials needed. This was the closest thing to a mentor program that I encountered during my time at Kaiser, but my supervisor also acted as my mentor throughout my years at Kaiser.
At my facility, there is a lot of focus on leadership growth. We do sessions with the entire management team that focuses on being better leaders. Personally, I have found my own mentors whose leadership style I admire. Meeting with my chosen mentors monthly, or more often when needed, has taught me how to navigate the political system, improved ways of changing culture, and how to make lasting change. A lot of leadership is about the relationships you build with others, ways to collaborate for change, and making improvements that impact lives of our patients.
