Mentor Application Deadline Extended to Jan. 4

The MAFP Mentorship Program is designed to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, guidance, and support between members.
Module One will entail mentorship of Resident, Medical Student or Transitional members by MAFP Family Physician and Life members. Program space is limited to 10 pairings.

Module Two will consist of a trusted advisorship, one-to-one peer support between a New Physician (in practice less than seven years) and a Family Physician member (in practice more than seven years) with varying skill sets, knowledge, and experiences. Program space is limited to 10 pairings.

Guiding MAFP’s work in achieving that mission and vision is its strategic plan built on the pillars of advocacy/public policy, practice management and support, organizational excellence, and community. It is this last pillar—community—under which the MAFP Mentorship Program operates. The Academy has steadfastly provided member-wide opportunities for making connections, such as by hosting educational and networking events, engaging members in committees, and catalyzing online discussions through social media. Now, through the MAFP Mentorship Program, members have the opportunity to share expertise and offer guidance with one another in a more personal way. Each physician, resident, and student has a unique set of knowledge, skills, and talents, as well as support needs, which may be shared and met through one-on-one relationships and conversations.

In addition to facilitating relationship-building and strengthening the Academy as a whole, the goal of the MAFP Mentorship Program is to advance members’ leadership, professional development, practice management, scholarly activities, and work-life balance.

Participation in the MAFP Mentorship Program is limited to members only. Interested members should complete the application and email a current Curriculum Vitae and headshot by December 15, 2020, 5 pm ET to
