We are currently accepting applications from current University of Toronto Physiology undergraduate students to join the Physiology Mentorship Program (PhysioMP). This program pairs mentors (3rd-year and above enrolled in a PSL program of study for over a year) with mentees (new incoming or prospective PSL students).
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 of Physiology.
Both mentors & mentees will receive Co-Curricular Record (CCR) recognition upon completion of the program requirements.
Eligibility: Applicants must be Physiology undergraduate students* with good academic standing.
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 & mentees will also attend UPSA-hosted events (minimum one per semester). Mentees are expected to actively participate in the mentorship by asking questions, responding to their mentors, etc.
All applicants must complete a registration form at the following links below by the application deadline, which is: Friday, October 2, 2020. For more information, please email us.
* Space may be limited based on the number of mentor-mentee matchups. Mentors in a Physiology Specialist or Major Program are preferred. Matches will be made after reviewing mentor and mentee applications.
