CRANAplus LINKS Men­tor­ing pro­gram offers rur­al and remote health pro­fes­sion­als an oppor­tu­ni­ty for mutu­al­ly rich learn­ing and devel­op­ment — ben­e­fi­cial for both the mentee and mentors. 

LINKS is a struc­tured pro­gram with an online mod­ule and men­tor­ing con­tract agree­ment, under­tak­en vol­un­tar­i­ly by both men­tor and mentee. It’s flex­i­ble and accom­mo­dates indi­vid­u­als’ spe­cif­ic learn­ing needs in a sup­port­ive and nur­tur­ing man­ner. The pro­gram focus­es on build­ing capa­bil­i­ties in clin­i­cal lead­er­ship, deci­­sion-mak­ing, net­work­ing and resilience dur­ing place­ments and recent­ly gained employment.
