From my own experience mentoring, structure and setting expectations for both the mentee and mentor are critical.  I don't think these guidelines have been used yet, but they have helped other programs build successful mentor relationships:

- mentee is expected to schedule each meeting
- mentee is expected to come ready with a set of questions and objectives for each meeting
- mentee should provide follow up with results from advice or discussion

These guidelines apply for remote or face to face and should be pretty obvious how they help both sides, so I won't get into that.

Thanks,
Kathleen
