The Global Health Mentoring Program's greatest asset is the commitment of its mentors. In turn, being a mentor may indeed be a highly rewarding experience, and an opportunity to both reflect on one's knowledge and pass this knowledge and insight into complex issues to a new generation of medical students.
If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a mentor, please do not hesitate in contacting us.
Mentors will be matched with students who have indicated their interest in a topic similar to the mentors’ area of interest. The partnership will then be expected to develop their own, individualised goals for the year. Aside from the expectation of monthly contact between the partnership, including four face-to-face meetings, the scope of the partnership is very much in the capable hands of the mentor and the student.
It is hoped that the partnership will be mutually beneficial, both in providing the student with knowledge but also in allowing the mentor to reflect on their own experience and gain exposure to the next generation. This will help to build a larger, more connected global health community.
This year-long mentoring program is relying on the generosity and good will of Global Health professionals to help the younger generations become as passionate and effective in global health as they are.
