Faculty of Population Health Sciences Mentor Scheme

FPHS offers a cross-institute mentoring scheme.

The scheme aims to:

  • Promote awareness of mentorship and its benefits for mentors and mentees
  • Develop and provide training where needed 
  • Help to establish and maintain positive mentorship relationships
  • To take part in this scheme you will need to attend a training session or complete the online training on Moodle. This training outlines the benefits of mentoring and how to become a mentee and/or mentor on the scheme with some guidance for fruitful mentoring relationships. Would be mentors are also required to familiarise themselves with UCL's Let's Talk About Race and Racism Toolkit.

You will then have the option to find a mentor yourself through the FPHS Mentoring Moodle Platform, or be matched directly to a mentor.
