Mentorship is a key component of professional development in any profession. Mentoring is a dynamic process and is a form of workplace learning that involves regular, ongoing, dynamic engagement that includes guided feedback, encouragement, and professional reflection.
Mentorship is a foundational component of IRG’s professional development pathway. IRG clinicians will have the opportunity to engage in mentorship opportunities through two distinct programs: Peer to Peer Mentorship & Enhanced Clinical Mentorship.
IRG Mentorship Program
The IRG mentorship program is designed to foster clinician engagement, leadership, and teamwork throughout our regionally diverse organization. This collaborative process is a foundation of professional development, and IRG is excited to offer two distinct opportunities for mentorship.
Peer to Peer Mentorship
Beginning January 2019
All newly hired clinicians within the IRG family of clinics will have the opportunity to connect with and experienced clinician within the organization.
Mentors and mentees will be asked to connect at least one time per month through email, phone, or in-person for the first 6 months of the newly hired clinician’s tenure with IRG.
The designated mentor will be available to discuss, share, and collaborate on clinical decision making, case load management, documentation, and other clinical concerns.
All mentors and mentees will receive contact information upon completion of new hire onboarding process.
Any questions or concerns regarding mentors or mentees should be directed to the IRG Mentorship Coordinator – Danielle Beels PT, DPT
Enhanced Clinical Mentorship
Beginning April 2019
Clinicians with up to two years of practice experience will have the opportunity to participate
This program includes four focused, on – site clinical mentorship sessions. This program provides a more structured and guided opportunity discuss, develop, and reflect on current clinical practice habits and identify future growth opportunities.
