October 4, 2018
In the Harvard Business Review article, “How Doctors Can Be Better Mentors,” Sanjay Saint (with co-author Vineet Chopra) explain how practicing mindfulness can lead to a better mentor/mentee relationship. When mentoring a colleague, Saint and Chopra try to practice four things: being available, knowing their role, be objective, and putting themselves in their mentee’s shoes.
Saint is a faculty associate of the Center for Positive Organizations and is the George Dock Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan, the Director of the VA/University of Michigan Patient Safety Enhancement Program, and the Chief of Medicine at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System.
