The SHPA Mentoring Program fosters one-to-one connections, enabling pharmacists to build confidence, sharpen focus, dismantle barriers and grow job satisfaction.
The Platinum Partnership Program enables full access to facilitated face-to-face training, ongoing support, certification and networking and the Gold Partnership Program offers less intensive, online-based mentoring.
Both programs enable pharmacist mentees to draw on the skills and experience of more senior pharmacists to power their potential through expertly facilitated training and purpose-matched and supported partnerships.
For Platinum Partnership mentors, direct access to two of Australia’s best executive coaches and tailored integration workshops will ensure developed techniques and skills can be applied to enhance daily leadership practice. Platinum Partnership mentors will also join the SHPA Mentor Network upon completion of the program.
