MD/PhD Longitudinal Mentorship Program - Mentee Application

The MD/PhD Alumni Mentorship Program will be virtual for 2020-2021.

This program is a fantastic way for MD/PhD students to connect with alumni in one-on-one conversations. For students, this is an opportunity to receive advice and insight into the field of medicine and grow a professional network.  For alumni, this is an opportunity to support student success. Above and beyond specializations, the mentorship program helps students build a meaningful professional relationship with an experienced professional.

The Alumni Mentorship Program runs through the academic year (September to May).

Once matched, alumni mentors and student mentees must meet at least 2-3 times during the academic year. If schedules allow, additional meetings are encouraged.  

For more information, please contact Karen Lee, Alumni Relations Officer at

Diversity Request

What is a Diversity Request? Many mentees value having a mentor who can identify with their personal situation. By providing us with information on your own diversity profile you can help us to match you with share the same background as you. While this is strictly a voluntary step and not required, the information is helpful in providing the best quality matches between students and mentors. An example of diversity information could be if you were raising a family either while attending school or shortly after graduation. All information will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used for the purpose of matching mentors and mentees.

While we will do our best to connect with you a mentor that meets your specifications, limitations based upon mentor availability may mean that your assigned mentor does not perfectly fit these criteria. We ask that you remember the commitment of both time and effort being put forward by your mentor, and that you engage with them according to the MD/PhD Mentorship Program Guidelines regardless of their area of research, clinical specialty, or personal circumstances.
