OMP Update: Year in Review!

It has been one year since the launch of the FPHTC Online Mentor Program! (Woot-woot!) Since then there have been many milestones (and growing pains). As the program continues to evolve this year, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on several program milestones and share the news on things to come.

Below are participant statistics. (Click on image for full size.)

Things participants can expect to see in 2013:

  • Increased enrollment. Our goal is to double the number of participants. The more public health professionals and USF COPH faculty/students enroll in the program, the more potential matches they will have to choose from.
  • Increased relevance. Our newly added features allow participants to be more proactive in choosing their match. We have made it easy for any participant to select the right match from his/her list of best matches.
  • Increased engagement. With the help of Florida Department of Health, we anticipate more active mentorships and program completers. On average, it takes a participant about 8-9 months to complete their mentorship experience. Of the participants currently engaged in a mentorship, 44% are half-way through the program.

We hope you are excited about the year ahead as much as we are!

If you are a public health professional in Florida and are interested in participating in a mentorship (as a mentor or mentee), we encourage you to check out the program details or email the Program Coordinator at omp@health.usf.edu.
