As Daloz (1986) said “I resolved to look more closely at what good teachers and mentors actually do as they guide their charges along on their transformational journeys.” In this session I will explore what good mentors and good mentees can do toward achieving successful outcomes and address specific characteristics of effective mentors. This session will be of interest to mentors and mentees in research and clinical areas.
