Mentors Across Borders

About Us

Mentors Across Borders (MAB) is a dynamic and diverse international community of Leaders in Health Professions Education, united by a shared passion for mentoring and nurturing fellow educators as well as scholarship. This community aims to promote collegial global conversations about important educational topics in a psychologically safe space to interact, share success stories and challenges, and potentially enhance professional identity.

Who We Are

This group is modeled on the Community of Practice model described by Lave and Wenger. Such groups can be formed spontaneously or deliberately and come together through a shared passion and interest. Group membership is flexible and individuals can choose to be at the core of the group or participate more peripherally.

Leadership Core

MAB features a core group of educators who make key decisions about group initiatives, organize and present virtual mentoring, world café events and Twitter chats, and collaborate on team scholarship. View our leadership core here.
