Mentorship Programme

Introduction

The principle of our mentorship programme is to match mentees and mentors by their interests, aspiration and expectations, so as to accelerate the personal and professional development of mentees. This is achieved by providing mentees with advice, guideline and feedback from mentors in the public health/ healthcare related industries.

 

Participation in the mentorship program is on voluntary basis and the partnership is based on mutual trust. The mentoring relationship will officially start in October and end in July (of the next year). Mentors and mentees are encouraged to meet up at least 4 times throughout the programme.

Objective of the programme

  • To coach students and give advice related to career development

  • To discuss career plans and potential obstacles during the study journey

  • To provide opportunities for social, professional and business connection

  • To share experiences gained through own development process and work

  • To nurture a community of local Public Health Practitioners
