CSIH MentorNet connects Students and Young Professionals (SYPs) interested in global health with experts in the field for discussion and coaching over a period of 10 to 12 months.
CSIH provides a curriculum of more than 40 diverse educational modules in global health, as well as a program liaison (MentorNet steering committee member) to support and facilitate the mentorship process. The program is very flexible, with mentors and SYPs free to adapt the program in a way that suits them best. On average, SYP-mentor pairs meet monthly through Skype or in person, using the educational modules provided by their program liaisons as a starting off point.
A successful mentorship experience is one that benefits both the mentor and the SYP through exploring issues in new ways and by giving/receiving career and life advice in the field of global health.
