Mentors and positive role models are almost always instrumental in guiding students towards a particular career path. In the context of interprofessional education this is also true of positive role models among students who aid their peers and will take a leading role in these education programs moving forward. Providing strong mentorship programs for student leaders that engage their values, guide them in accordance with principles of self-directed learning, and create greater awareness of the opportunities that facilitate self-discovery and maturation, will ensure the future success of interprofessional education programs.
