MRM Graduate Mentorship Program

The MRM Graduate Mentorship Program was created by the MRM Trainee Committee and is designed to help incoming early-stage graduate students find their footing in graduate school by being matched with a senior student within the MRM Network. The program aims to facilitate meaningful and lasting connections between students at different stages of their grad school journey, where mentors will be able to demonstrate their leadership and interpersonal skills.

Registration for the program is currently OPEN
You can register as a mentor or a mentee until December 23, 2023, by 11:59 PM

Sign up as a Mentor! Sign up as a Mentee!


How does it work?

Mentors and mentees are matched based on their research interests and their preferences for meeting frequency (once per month, bi-monthly, or other) and meeting format (online or in person). The minimum duration of involvement in the MRM Graduate Mentorship Program is one academic semester. After one term, mentors and mentees can either continue in their original pairing or re-register to be matched with a new partner.

Mentors can expect to gain valuable mentorship experience where they can share their skills, broaden their perspectives on graduate life, and find community through helping their peers.

Mentees can expect to gain valuable advice on graduate life at McGill in regenerative medicine research. Mentees will be able to grow their research confidence, get to know Montreal/McGill better, network, and feel well-equipped during the early stages of their graduate degree.
