EOPH Mentoring Program

"Participating in the mentoring program helped me network and meet leaders in the EOPH field. My mentor introduced me to many of his colleagues at the assembly meeting, which gave me, a graduate student, the opportunity to interact with experienced researchers." - Claire McCarthy

Expectations for Mentees

  1. Introduce yourself and start a dialog with your assigned mentor by virtual or digital means. Email CV to mentor.
  2. Share short and long-term goals with the mentor.
  3. Arrange for a digital/virtual meeting at a time that works for both. Be proactive about communication, while being considerate of your mentor's time

*Note: Because every mentor-mentee pair is unique based on each person's experience, personality and professional development track, it might be helpful to suggest a trial period in which both parties can assess whether the mentoring relationship is working.
