Mentor Program

What is the MDMLG Mentor Program?

The purpose of the MDMLG mentor program is to provide students with the opportunity to explore the field of health sciences librarianship. Health sciences librarians work in a variety of places: hospitals, academic medical centers, colleges, universities, research institutes and consumer health libraries. There are also health science librarians employed by industries like pharmaceutical and medical equipment companies, as well as federal, state and local government agencies. By matching students with practicing health sciences librarians, MDMLG can offer real life experiences in different types of health sciences libraries.

Students interested in participating in the mentor program should complete this form -- Mentor Program - Mentee Sign-Up Form. Students will be matched with a mentor in the health sciences library area of interest. Mentors will provide students with the opportunity to visit a health sciences library and develop an understanding of the type of work performed by health sciences librarians. The mentor and student will develop an ongoing relationship with mutually agreed upon meeting times and duration of the overall program. The mentor and student will work together to foster professional development, engage in continuing educational opportunities, and provide networking with other health sciences library professionals.
