As students transition from graduate programs to their Clinical Fellowship Experience, there is a corresponding shift in their autonomy and level of supervision. Supervisors of student clinicians and mentors of Clinical Fellows share many of the same roles and responsibilities as key figures in the professional development of the new clinician. Mentors are appropriately less directive than supervisors as part of a collaborative process with the Clinical Fellow. The mentor is charged with facilitating and promoting reflective practice techniques while giving consideration to influence and power; interpersonal skills; issues of race, culture, gender, and age; and professional ethics.
