There is an infinite amount of literature and resources that exist for formal mentoring in

the workplace. The process can occur in the form of the preceptorship of clinical

students or new graduates or as a component of a professional development plan for a

leadership role.

used interchangeably to describe what is typically known as a "mentor" in a formal

mentoring program.
