Could you Mentor a Medical Student?

The University of Aberdeen's Careers and Employability Service are looking for volunteer mentors (medical staff, FY2 level and above) for our Career Mentoring Programme for medical students. 

During 2023 the programme will run for a 3-month periods between April and June. We are now looking for mentors who are able to commit 1-2 hours per month to mentor current medical students. Previous experience is not required; rather good communication skills and a non-judgmental manner. Mentors will be provided with a Certificate at the end of the mentoring process, which would be a fantastic addition to CVs, training e-portfolios, and can be used for CPD purposes. 

Student demand to participate in the programme is high and the more volunteers we have the more students can be helped to achieve their career goals.

To find out more and to register to become a mentor (and to read more about mentors’ experiences) please visit www.abdn.ac.uk/mentoring.

The deadline for applications to be a mentor for 2023 is March 3rd.
If you would like any more information, please do not hesitate to get in touch at mentor@abdn.ac.uk.
