Leadership Mentoring Program

The Faculty of Health Sciences runs the Leadership Mentoring Program for students in their final year of study who have leadership aspirations and potential. It gives you the opportunity to receive mentoring from leaders in the private or public health sector.

The program is designed to help you develop a wider perspective of the health care system and better understand career options as a health leader. You’ll observe leadership and teamwork skills in action and develop an understanding of attitudes, knowledge and the skills required for leadership roles in health.

You will be mentored for a period of five months from July to November. During this time you need to commit to four face-to-face sessions with your mentor. The location, day and time will be agreed between you and your mentor. There may also be opportunities to job shadow your mentor during the program.

If you're an international student from Singapore or Hong Kong planning to return home to work in 2018, you are also able to apply. You can join the local Leadership Mentoring Program and receive mentoring in the first six months of 2018 with a mentor in Singapore or Hong Kong.
