The purpose of the NHMA Resident Mentoring Program is to develop awareness of medical professionalism, career opportunities and networks for the NHMA Council of Residents.  NHMA will develop a national mentoring program for NHMA resident members (NHMA Council of Residents) matched to NHMA physician members.  The program will promote a unique forum for communication and learning based on the knowledge and experience of Hispanic physician mentors. 

A mentor is an active partner in an ongoing relationship who helps you maximize your potential and achieve your personal and professional goals.

The program will run from March 2014 to March 2015. It will target Residents that are members of the National Hispanic Medical Association and pair them with established and leading Professionals in an area of medicine that the Resident has a career interest in. It will provide a unique opportunity for Residents to gain insight and hopefully real experience in said area and will simultaneously provide the mentor an opportunity to make a personal contribution to the professional development of an NHMA Resident.  Although, the mentoring program is geared towards establishing relationships that aim to strengthen a resident’s professional development in the Professional’s field, it is by no means expected for Mentors to offer an internship or field experience to the Resident. 

Below, the mentor and mentee will find their respective application. We ask that you complete the application byFebruary 7, 2014 so we may begin the process of pairing you with a Resident/Physician.  Additional information about the program can be found in the Program Overview, which can be found below.

To participate in the program, you must be a NHMA member.  For additional questions please contact John Aguilar atThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 202-628-5895.
