This panel will focus on helping young professionals and students understand what they gain from a mentor/mentee relationship and highlight the work of AHRMM and the Young Professional Advisory Council (YPAC) to help make those connections. We will have an exploratory conversation between a mentor/mentee match and what they have gained through the relationship and how The University of Kansas Health System Spend Management department created an innovative mentoring program that has created success for their stakeholders.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the benefits of a mentoring relationship from both the mentor and mentee perspective
  2. Explore a successful healthcare supply chain mentoring program that is driving innovation
