This brief paper reports on the electronic mentoring (eMentoring) program at Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children (Sunny Hill). The project task is to develop infrastructure to train distance mentors who support new graduate physical, occupational and speech-language therapists in rural British Columbia. The program used desktop video (iChat) in phase I to train two mentees and online learning in phase II to train five mentors and has developed the necessary infrastructure to develop a provincial program of mentor training, mentor/mentee matching and technical support.
