Mentorship at CCI Anesthesia: Moving the Needle on Your Career

At CCI Anesthesia, we provide our anesthesia professionals with the tools necessary to thrive in perioperative care. We know that investing in our providers doesn’t just improve patient outcomes—it also creates the strong support network that you need to enjoy your career. 

Our Institute for Excellence offers each CCI Anesthesia professional unique and valuable networking opportunities and mentorship with our Chiefs of Anesthesia, Regional Clinical Officers and Regional Medical Officers. Through mentorship at the Institute for Excellence, we work to help our team embrace change in the perioperative field, develop strong leadership skills, establish cultural competence to provide care to diverse communities effectively and more.

Mentorship Benefits

The field of perioperative care is constantly changing, and working with an experienced mentor can help you gain the support and skills necessary to excel. According to Forbes, a mentor can provide a roadmap for your professional career. 

“Ideally, a mentor will have achieved the level of success you hope to achieve for yourself and will be able to challenge and push you in ways others can’t,” said Natasha Koifman of the Forbes Business Council. “Having a mentor is more than just setting and achieving goals; it’s about having someone in your corner who can provide valuable feedback, encouragement, and support to help you grow professionally and personally.”

Mentorship through CCI’s Institute for Excellence offers many benefits, including: 

  • Skill development: Mentors can provide in-the-moment feedback, constructive criticism, and positive reinforcement when you’re learning a new skill. In a career field where on-the-job perfection matters, acquiring new skills under the guidance of an experienced mentor can make all the difference in creating positive patient outcomes. 
  • Career progression: It’s hard to see ourselves accurately, especially when evaluating our career potential. Working with a mentor can help you identify and work on weak spots while utilizing your strengths to help you move forward in your career. 
  • Adaptability to changes in the field: Whether you’re at the start of your career or you’ve been in the game for a decade, working with a mentor can make it easier to adapt to the seemingly constant changes in the perioperative field. Your mentor can help you find ways to seamlessly incorporate new best practices into your work, offering lessons learned from their years of experience to help you adapt to change.

Leadership Development

CCI’s Institute for Excellence offers ongoing leadership training to help our providers serve patients and their communities as well-rounded professionals. Our 360-Degree Program offers coaching from our experienced physicians and CRNAs, allowing our physicians to become strong clinical leaders. We offer leadership conferences nationwide throughout the year, featuring instruction and mentorship on various topics, from emerging research and best practices to serving as an effective leader in perioperative care.

Ongoing Professional Development

In the ever-changing field of perioperative care, continuous learning and improvement are key to great patient outcomes. We continually provide professional development opportunities through our mentorship programs, conferences, and distribution of research to ensure that our care providers offer industry-best care.

Staying Ahead in Anesthesia Care

At CCI Anesthesia, we know that understanding the unique needs of each community we serve is critical, and we’re committed to supporting our care providers. By offering educational and development opportunities, we can give our providers a higher sense of career satisfaction. We respect the important work that our care providers do.

“CCI has been at the forefront regarding allowing excellent work-life balance for anesthesiologists and CRNAs, providing a culture of respect and providing excellent incomes. This allows us to recruit and retain CRNAs and anesthesiologists when others may not be able to,” says CCI Anesthesia Executive Vice President Nathan Yoder.

By providing access to training, professional development, research and mentorship within the CCI family, we can create a home base for our care providers. When you work with CCI, you’ll have everything you need in one place, allowing you to excel in your career.

Impact on Patient Care and Efficiency

Our partnering hospitals love the quality of care our anesthesiologists and CRNAs provide. Our innovative staffing model, melded with our focus on patient-centric, standardized care, creates results that matter. At Union Hospital in Terre Haute, Indiana, administrators struggled with poor provider recruiting and retention, so they contacted CCI Anesthesia for help. Union Hospital experienced a quick turnaround in its anesthesia staffing while retaining an impressive 85% of its providers. Lower turnover rates often result in improved patient outcomes and higher levels of patient satisfaction.
