Welcome to the Commissioned Corps Health Services Officer Mentoring Program. The HSO Mentoring Program is a means for officers serving as mentors to help other officers develop and advance in their careers. Through continued involvement, the mentor offers support, guidance, and assistance as the mentee faces new professional challenges, experiences challenges, and/or works to resolve conflicts. The Mentoring Program is a 1-year program designed to allow officers to sign up as mentors and/or mentees through a Web-based system with password-protected login accounts. Matches are made by designated HSO Mentoring Program Coordinators based on criteria and factors selected by mentees. If you are sincerely interested in supporting a fellow officer by being a mentor (preferable 05 and above) or if you would like to seek a mentor, the HSO Mentoring Program is for you.If you would like to apply as a mentor or mentee, please login and complete the appropriate on-line application form here:
All attempts will be made to match officers based on geographic proximity, but this is not always possible. The major matching criterion will be area of professional interest and discipline. Information about the HSO Mentoring Program is included in the Welcome Letter and introductory email to new matches. New applicants to the HSO Mentoring Program will be matched on a monthly basis.
Program evaluation is critical to the improvement of the Mentoring Program. Please visit the Mentoring Training Resources webpage for the Mentoring Program Evaluations forms. The program evaluation forms should be filled out by Mentors and Mentee within six months of the initial Mentor-Mentee match and at 1-year completion of the Mentor-Mentee match. The completed program evaluation forms should be returned to the Mentoring Subcommittee Chair.Please don't hesitate to contact CDR Todd Alspach if you have any questions about Mentoring.
