Population health scientists have to navigate many challenges. The IAPHS Mentoring Program seeks to meet the needs of members – at any career stage – who could use some advice on professional development issues.
Being a mentor is a deeply rewarding way to contribute to population health science. It builds fruitful relationships that, for many, bring new insights and ideas to their work. Most importantly, it offers the satisfaction of making a difference in the career of a next generation scientist.
How the Program Works:
1. Sign up
1. Sign up
2. Get Matched
IAPHS will compare the needs and expectations of mentors and mentees. We can’t guarantee a match, but we’ll do the best we can!
3. Establish a Plan
We’ve created a template that will help the mentor and mentee work out their goals and expectations. Once you’ve submitted your plan, you’re officially enrolled in the program.
4. You’re Off and Running!
IAPHS will support you with monthly emails that provide tips and resources to help you get the most out of your relationship. But it’s up to you to keep in touch and to let the relationship evolve in helpful ways while honoring the expectations you’ve agreed to.
