OCRA Mentoring Program

mentoring logoOCRA's Mentoring Program helps promote the career growth and development of OCRA Members and strengthens the regulatory affairs profession. The Mentoring Program is a process for professional and personal development in which an individual (the Mentee) strives to achieve one or more development goals under the guidance of a more experienced colleague (the Mentor). Mentoring is not intended to help Mentees find new jobs, but it can be helpful in discussions related to changing careers or advancing in current career paths. 

The Mentoring Program requires a six-month commitment from its Mentors and Mentees. Applications to become a Mentor or a Mentee are necessary.
