Mentorship

The LMP Mentorship Program

The Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology Student Union is pleased to present the Specialist students with a mentorship opportunity. The LMP Mentorship Program was first launched as a pilot program in the 2015-16 academic year and was well-received by both mentees and mentors. Since then, we made many exciting changes to enrich the learning of our students and to further the tight-knit community LMP is known to have. We hope you join us on this exciting journey in 2016-17!
