Mentorship Program


About the Program

The NAMSS mentorship program was established under the oversight of the Membership Committee in 2019. Medical Services Professionals (MSPs) have been endowed with a driving motivation to teach and share the knowledge they have been able to accumulate during their professional careers. The mentoring program is designed for everyone! If you need help studying for the CPCS or CPMSM, mastering a new skill or growing your career, use the NAMSS mentorship program to seek a mentor.

Mentors share certain qualities - expertise in their chosen fields, a passion to share knowledge and wisdom, and the confidence and self-esteem to give the best of themselves to others. A mentor is a coach, a guide, an instructor, and a guru. Mentoring is about listening without judgment, questioning for clarification, and challenging for results. The focus of a mentoring relationship is specific to the expertise of the mentor to meet the needs of the mentee. The safe and collegial environment of such a relationship tends to produce excellent outcomes for both participants. As a mentor, your protégé can learn valuable real-life lessons based on your wisdom minus the pain of acquiring it.

Would you like to be a mentor? Mentors provide opportunities for their protégés to experience teachable moments and use new skills. They are able to articulate critical ideas and relevant points that lead to desired results. Mentors are able to manage the learning curve and allow their protégés to explore the consequences of their potential decisions.
