mentor/mentee program

The Minnesota Academy of Audiology Mentor/Mentee Program pairs a University of Minnesota first-year AuD student with an audiologist in the community. Mentors will be paired with a student in the Spring semester, allowing the student time to explore areas of interest. MAA committee members do their best to pair the mentor and mentee based on work setting and clinical interests. The hope is that the student will reach out to their mentor to ask questions about becoming and being an audiologist,

Commitment:
  • The mentor and mentee will remain paired through the remainder of the first, second, and third years of schooling (approximate commitment of 2.5 years)
  • It is up to the mentor and mentee to determine how much interaction they have and whether this is through phone calls, email, Skype, or in-person meetings. Mentors do not have to be in the Twin-Cities area.
  • Group gatherings are coordinated for all mentors and mentees to attend, if possible.
  • Mentors are NOT required to take on a student for a clinical rotation or externship.

MAA Fellow members are requested to consider volunteering to help guide audiology students, as they will soon be our colleagues. If interested in participating, or to learn more, please contact Kerry Witherell.
