Mentoring

Become a mentor and share your experience

Mentoring is a rewarding way to share your experiences and expertise with today's students and tomorrow's pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists.

Meet our ambassadors

As an alumni mentor, you can become involved in the faculty's Student Gemma And BillAmbassador Program, which teams you up with one of our talented undergraduates based on the career pathway they’re interested in pursuing.

You can then share your insights into working life and offer networking opportunities and tips on achieving career goals. You also gain first-hand account of student life and education as it exists today at the faculty. No doubt, you too might learn a thing or two from your mentee.

"As a former ambassador myself I understand the impact the mentoring program can have.  I was mentored by two inspirational pharmacists from very different backgrounds and enjoyed learning about their respective roles and career paths.  As a mentor I hope that by sharing my experience I can encourage my mentees to consider a career in a rural/regional area and give them a greater understanding of the options available after completing their course."

Gemma Kaiser (mentor)

I'm interested in pursuing pharmacy in rural areas so I asked Gemma a lot of questions about her experiences working in a rural hospital pharmacy, as well as how it compares to working in a metropolitan setting. I also inquired about the how the intern year worked, so I knew what to expect when applying for internships. Having a mentor really helps. You have someone experienced who you can turn to for advice and support.
