Hope you’ve all enjoyed your summer! The PTSA was already busy planning ahead this summer and would like to introduce to you one of their biggest projects – PTSA Peer Mentorship.
After a successful inaugural year, we are delighted to continue this year-long program and incorporate a few additional elements in hopes of improving it further for the second year. The Peer Mentorship program pairs upper year students (3rd and 4th years), who are our mentors, enrolled in Pharmacology & Toxicology with second year students, our mentees, new to the program. Mentors are given the opportunity to share their experience and knowledge on how they navigated through the Pharmacology & Toxicology program and the larger University in general. They will also participate in workshops aimed at improving the skill set needed to be a great mentor. Of course, there will also be social events for mingling and in hopes of creating a close community within the Mentorship program.
Sound great? We’re opening applications for Peer Mentors for the 2014-2015 year! Read this document to check out some details. If you are interested in becoming a Mentor in this amazing program, please send in your resume to PTSAmentorship@gmail.com as well as fill out a Google Docs application.
The deadline for applications will be Friday, September 12th 2014 at 11:59pm.
If you have any questions, feel free to email PTSAmentorship@gmail.com.
