Mentoring Medical Students
Inspire and guide medical students to deepen their interests in global health
Mentorship is a critical component of our students’ educational advancement and can be a rewarding experience.
"I love mentoring DGSOM students. They are some of the brightest and most compassionate people I know. We work together on high impact projects. I help them do things sometimes out of their comfort zone. I think that’s a valuable activity for a mentor, enabling students to tap into their strengths and do things they did not know they could do themselves."
- Jeff Klausner, MD, MPH, Medicine/Infectious Diseases
We offer multiple opportunities for faculty and staff to support medical students to explore or deepen their interests in global health research, through both the Global Short-Term Training Program (GSTTP) and the longitudinal Global Health Pathway.
If you would like to serve as a mentor, please contact Dr. Traci Wells at TWells@mednet.ucla.edu.
