MENTORING PROGRAM LEAD

Understanding the human body and how the environment interacts with it is critical to being able to make rational health decisions. In our community, we depend on experts of the human body, doctors, to guide us in our quest to lead healthy and productive lives. However, training to become a doctor can be a long, arduous and at times confusing journey. Our Medicine Program is designed to support the next generation of doctors through tailored tutelage and mentorship, so as to ensure that they are well-equipped with the knowledge and skills to be able to consult on the health of the broader community to the highest standards. Delivered by outstanding pre-medical and medical graduates through their own generosity of spirit, our Medicine Program operates on a pays-what-you-can model, with all profits going to a designated cause committed to advancing a specific SDG at the end of the year.
