Mentoring program for Indigenous students
There is a new staff mentoring program for Indigenous students enrolled in Indigenous Pre-Medicine and the Health Sciences Enabling Course.
The pre-medicine pathway for Indigenous students is a new program at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies (CAS) to prepare and equip young Aboriginal students for Curtin’s health science courses, including medicine.
It is important to provide some extra support, initiative, encouragement and guidance to our students.
CAS is continually striving to introduce innovative ideas to achieve this goal. Mentoring will help these students achieve their dreams.
Who can be a mentor?
For our Indigenous students to master their future, we need you. Any professional from CAS, or another department of Curtin, who wants to make a positive difference and help young Indigenous students to pursue their career in health at Curtin is welcome to become a mentor.
What are a mentor’s responsibilities?
(i) Being paired with young mentees enrolled in the first pre-medicine course at CAS.
(ii) Being available for one-to-one interaction with mentees for one to two hours a week for the duration of the session.
