Judie Ginter and Karen Randall held an orientation will be an overview of the RCMG Mentor Program. They provided information on the mentor and team structure for 2023, new resources and materials to help mentors, and share some suggestions on supporting interns during the first year. They also provide information on intern expectations and detail what has been communicated to our 2023 interns to date.

Attending mentors were asked to share best practices and ideas for 2023 intern support and team activities.
