    The Mentoring and Professionalism in Training (MAP-IT) program at Northwell Health is designed to bring together an interprofessional healthcare team to address the importance of highlighting humanism as a core skill for health care professionals, especially in their teaching and mentoring roles with all levels of students, trainees and early-career colleagues. The three underpinnings of the MAP-IT program are humanistic role-modeling and mentoring, reflective practice, and listening. The program aims to shift conversations away from the more traditional problem-focused discussions. Appreciative Inquiry, as a framework, is applied to all sessions to create a positive culture for all small group discussions that include critical reflection and sharing of individual experiences.
