Registration for 2019/2020 is now open!
We are currently accepting applications from current University of Toronto Physiology graduate students to join the Physiology Mentorship Program (PhysioMP). This program pairs graduate Physiology mentors (2nd-year and above; MSc or PhD) with incoming new MSc or direct-entry PhD mentees. The mentor will support the mentee with all aspects of the graduate program, by giving advice on topics such as departmental requirements, campus opportunities, and lifestyle balances. This program encourages mentors to strengthen their leadership and communication skills, share their experiences with others, and develop a sense of community within the Department. Both mentors & mentees will receive Co-Curricular Record (CCR) recognition upon completion of the program.
Expectations: Each mentor will be paired with 1 – 2 mentees, and must commit to communicating with their mentee(s) in-person or via email throughout the year (minimum commitment of 3 – 5 hours/semester per mentee), and attend the Mentorship Foundations training sessions. Mentors will also attend GASP-hosted events (minimum one per semester), and they are encouraged to bring their mentee(s) along. Mentees are expected to actively participate in the mentorship by asking questions, responding to their mentors, etc.
Eligibility: Applicants must be Physiology graduate students with good academic standing.
All applicants must complete a registration form at the following links below by the application deadline, which is: Friday, September 20, 2019. For more information, please email us.
