Registration for 2019/2020 is now closed
We are currently accepting applications from current University of Toronto Physiology undergraduate students to join the Physiology Mentorship Program (PhysioMP). This program pairs undergraduate Physiology mentors (3rd-year and above) with incoming new 2nd-year mentees. The mentor will support the mentee with all aspects of the Physiology 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 UPSA-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 undergraduate students with good academic standing.
All applicants must complete a registration form at the following links below by the application deadline, which is: Monday, September 30, 2019. For more information, please email us.
