Health Mentors Program 2012/2013: Call for Applicants

Are you interested in sharing your experiences and expertise with UBC health professional students? The Division of Health Care Communication at UBC is currently looking for individuals living with a chronic condition or disability, or caregivers who provide care for a loved one with a chronic condition or disability, to become health mentors. Health mentors are volunteers who meet with a group of 4 health professional students over 16 months (Sept. 2012 – Dec. 2013), and share their experiences with the healthcare system and what it means to live with a chronic condition or disability. Participating student programs include: dentistry, dietetics, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, and social work. By becoming a health mentor, you will: contribute to the education of the health professionals of tomorrow, be a pioneer in this exciting new program, meet students and other health mentors, and help others to understand what it is like to live with your condition.
