Mentorship Program – Class of 2020

Mentorship Program – Class of 2020

Dear Members of the Health Law Section,

You are invited to apply to participate in the Mentorship Program – Class of 2020!

This Program is an exclusive benefit for Section members only. We are accepting applications now to participate as a Mentee or Mentor in the Class of 2020.

The Mentorship Program serves as a “Welcome” to Section members with less than 5 years of experience in health law (Mentees). For a one-year term, mentees will interact in group and individual settings with experienced healthcare attorneys (Mentors) who gather to share their wisdom, guidance, and encouragement with the next generation. Mentors must have at least 10 years of experience in health law.

During the year, the Section will host several group networking events and one-on-one mentoring opportunities exclusively for the Mentorship Program. Attendance is free. Mentees also are asked to devote 5 hours during the year to a pro bono service project or a Health Law Section activity.

Our aim for the Mentorship Program is to promote collegiality among Section members, build bridges, extend networks, foster professionalism and encourage the expansion of our health law bar.

The Mentorship Program is overseen by an Advisory Board comprised of Section members. The Board encourages participation in the Mentorship Program by attorneys engaged in every type of health law practice – private practice, in-house, government, public interest, and others – throughout the State of Georgia. We welcome applicants of all ages and backgrounds.
