The act of mentoring can be highly beneficial, both for the mentor and the mentee. Within the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Career Mentor Scheme in 2015, hundreds of students were matched with mentors from a wide range of industries, including business, education and health; but how prevalent is mentorship within the health information management profession? Because of the relatively small size of the profession (compared with the extremely broad disciplines of business and education), it could be assumed that the opportunities for and benefits of mentorship for HIMs are quite limited.
