Reflections on Mentorship
Reflections on Mentorship is essentially a journey: - looking back at mentorship experiences. This book is targeted at everyone involved in the mentor-mentee safari and seeks to relook what mentorship is and how effectively it should be done. Drawing from his experiences as a Trainee, Clinician, and Surgical Educator, Dr. Mwachiro shares lessons on the things that are toxic to mentorships, the importance of preparing well, and the nurturing power of sponsorships. The mix of stories and discussions is intended to act as a sounding board for reflection. Above all, it is also a clarion call to aspire for excellence in mentorship - and challenge to us all to be different not only in the fast-paced medical world but also in other spheres of life.
