Alumni Mentoring Program

  1. Business Alumni Mentoring Program
  2. Health Sciences Alumni Mentoring Program

Health Sciences Alumni Mentoring Program

The alumni mentoring program is an initiative of the Faculty of Health Sciences and its Alumni Association Executive Committee.

The program allows you to develop a one-on-one partnership with a mentor. Your mentor will provide advice and guidance by sharing their experiences and career journey. You’ll discuss networking and workplace dynamics, your vocational interests and career path, and get advice on opportunities that are available in the workplace to facilitate career development. Your mentor assists you to develop a professional resume and refine your interview skills.

In some situations, you may have the opportunity to shadow your mentor in their workplace.

The program is available to domestic students, as well as international students returning home to Singapore, Hong Kong or Canada.

For more information about the program, email the Alumni Engagement Team at alumni.healthsciences@sydney.edu.au
