A mentor is an individual, usually older, always more experienced, who helps and guides another individual’s development. This guidance is not done for personal gain.

Mentoring is used in many settings. Although it is most common in business, we saw above its use in a medical setting. It is commonly used in educational settings. It is also the basic principle behind the big brother and Big Sisters programs.

One of the most valuable assets your career can have is a good mentor.

In this interview we will look at ways to find a mentor, and the requirements you must meet if you want to be a mentor.

Maurice Srour is a dental student in NYU school of dentistry. He started in the 10th grade mentoring at the office of Dr. Jacques Doueck. He found that dentistry was his passion and now is studying to be a dentist.
