Health Mentors Program Cohort 12 Student Registration

Sep 19

Limited spaces available! Students must register by Sept. 19th.

Started in 2011, the Health Mentors program is a longitudinal program for students from different health disciplines to learn from and with a mentor who has a chronic condition or disability, or is a caregiver. Groups (four students and a mentor) meet several times a semester, focusing on a specific health care topic at each meeting. Groups are self-directed with the mentor as the primary teacher. Students have a faculty supervisor from their professional program who reads the reflective journals written after each meeting.

Participating programs: Audiology, Dentistry, Clinical Psychology, Genetic Counselling, Kinesiology, Medicine, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology.
