Student mentoring opportunity

1 March 2021 ASMS

The New Zealand Medical Students’ Association and the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists are proud to launch the ASMS-NZMSA Year 4 Clinical Mentoring Programme for 2021.

The programme pairs fourth year students in one-on-one mentoring partnerships with ASMS members. The key aims are:

  • To develop and foster wellbeing and resilience, not career coaching or specialty-specific advice
  • To reduce isolation and confusion for medical students throughout their medical training
  • To empower medical students through having access to mentors who can provide wisdom and advice
  • To upskill clinicians in communication and mentoring.

This programme is informal, with those paired up simply recommended to meet three or more times during the year, where students can share experiences, seek advice and gain further insight into medicine.

If you would like to be a part of the programme, please sign up here.
