Mentoring is available to doctors who want to become certified Pettibon practitioners.

Mentoring is defined as: a developmental relationship between an experienced person (mentor) and less experienced person (mentee). Mentoring has become a common practice in business and government. Research has documented its benefits of transferring knowledge and delivering on-the-job training. Effective mentoring programs typically have the following characteristics:

  • Mentors want to impart their knowledge and skills so mentees can advance and achieve.
  • Mentees value their mentors’ advice and guidance and feedback.
  • Mentors and mentees keep commitments made and confidences.
  • Mentors and mentees are open, honest, and tactful with each other.
  • Mentors and mentees amicably work out minor concerns and issues.
  • The success of the relationship benefits both mentors and mentees.

What can mentees expect from Pettibon mentors? Questions sent via email will be answered within 24 hours. There will be monthly conference calls, one-on-one help with tough cases, and hands-on classes conducted in mentors’ clinics. There will be encouragement and active listening and collegial respect.

What is expected from mentees? Successful completion of the core curriculum of three courses—either weekend or online or a mix. Successful completion of the two, hands-on practicum weekends. A commitment to providing a system of care that achieves real change as opposed to symptom relief!
