The Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH) MentorNet program is now accepting applications for 2017 global health mentors and mentees. MentorNet is a unique program aimed at connecting Students and Young Professionals (SYPs) interested in global health with experts in the field. Mentors and SYPs are free to establish a program that suits them best and their program liaison will facilitate the experience. On average SYP-Mentor pairs meet monthly through Skype or in person, using the educational modules provided by their program liaison as a starting-off point or navigating their mentorship relationship on their own, the program is very flexible! We as committee members deem a successful mentorship experience as one that benefits both the Mentor and the SYP through exploring new material, obtaining a new point of view on a topic, and by giving/receiving career and life advice in global health. Many of our SYPs have benefitted in tangible ways from their mentorship experiences by co-authoring papers with their mentors, working for their mentors, or being introduced to new opportunities and networks through their mentors and many of our mentors have returned year after year, loving the unique view into global health they receive from someone just starting out in the field.
The deadline is October 20th, 2016 at 11:59pm.
