The Mentorship Program recognizes LGBTQ+ competent individuals who serve as mentors for students, staff, and faculty. Those seeking a mentor fill out information about their interests in a mentor. Mentors receive these forms and connect with mentees at their own discretion.
Mentors offer consultation of school, career, research, or other academic pursuits. To qualify as a mentor, one must:
- provide mentorship for current or future students, staff, or faculty who either identify as LGBTQ+ themselves and/or are interested in LGBTQ+ healthcare
- be culturally competent to provide appropriate mentorship and guidance
- avoid assumptions of sexual orientation, gender identity, and other related biases
- create a welcoming, collaborative mentor-mentee relationship and safe space environment
