Audiology Mentor Program for Students (AMP-S)

Purpose

The Audiology Mentor Program for Students (AMP-S) is a virtual mentoring program where mentees and mentors work together to address the students’ career goals via the AMP-S mentoring platform. Doctor of Audiology (AuD) students are paired with practicing clinical audiologists who provide guidance, feedback, and support to the AuD students in their journey to becoming practicing professionals. All mentors and mentees have access to the ASHA AMP-S Community, where they can exchange ideas and share experiences with other mentors and mentees who are enrolled in the program. Bookmark this page and check back in August when enrollment begins!

Eligibility

An AMP-S mentee is

  • a student currently enrolled full time in an AuD program and
  • a NSSLHA or SAA member (preferred).

An AMP-S mentor is

  • a practicing clinical audiologist and
  • a Certified ASHA Member.

Format

The AMP-S program is an online, 12-month mentoring program that starts as soon as a mentee connects with a mentor in the mentoring system and lasts throughout the academic year. The AMP-S online mentoring platform enables

  • matching of mentees and mentors based on shared mentoring and clinical interests,
  • custom development of a Mentoring Connection Plan, and
  • tiers of mentoring to fit your needs.

In addition to one-on-one mentoring through the online Mentoring Connection Plan, all AMP-S enrollees are invited to participate in the ASHA AMP-S Online Community—a virtual community where you can share resources, engage in discussions, and connect with other AMP-S participants.
