2011 Undergraduate Mentorship Program

March 23rd, 2011

To all Physiology students,

On March 23rd, 2011 3:30 pm, GASP and UPSA, under the direction of Dr Michelle French of the Department of Physiology are initiating a mentoring event for undergraduate physiology students. 

This event will give students an opportunity to meet and interact with current graduate students to gain a better understanding about research and graduate studies in general. It will also gives them a chance to seek advice about academia, future professional plans or just everyday life.

Why should you be a peer mentor?

This is a great opportunity for you to informally talk about your research and to showcase your leadership and mentoring skills.

Refreshments will be provided.

What do you need to do?

Time commitment is minimal (no more than 2 hours). You are responsible for engaging in conversations with undergraduate students and telling them what graduate school is really like.

There will also be a Q&A period regarding how to get research opportunities and life in grad school.

When and Where?

The event will take place on *Wednesday March 23 2011 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm* in the Physiology Seminar room.

How to Join?

If interested, please contact Yi Quan (Feng Lab) or Keith Ho (Mount Lab)
