MD/PhD Longitudinal Mentorship Program Launch

September 03, 2013

 

We are pleased to announce the launch of the MD/PhD Longitudinal Mentorship Program this Spring 2013.  This is an annual program designed to connect students with alumni and established physician scientists.  Mentors can provide advice on career choices, professional development and opportunities.  Students are encouraged to set goals and meet regularly with their mentors to establish a lasting connection.

 

On June 13, 2013, we held a kick-off event to introduce the program to the enrollees.  Dr. Norm Rosenblum, MD/PhD Program Director, and Dr. Robert Jankov, Senior Scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children, spoke about the benefits of mentorship and how to form an effective mentor-mentee relationship.  Morgan Tilley, Office of Advancement and Program Development/Administration, outlined the structure of the program.  Feedback and inquiries about the program can be directed to Morgan (morgan.tilley@utoronto.ca).
