Mentorship Programme

Programme Overview

GLODERM brings together a unique community of dermatology professionals with a focus on Global Health Dermatology. Connecting these individuals, at all career stages, who are passionate about the advancement of skin health in resource-limited communities, locally and globally is central to GLODERM’s mission.

The Mentorship Programme is a cornerstone of GLODERM’s sustainable and integrated approach to improving dermatologic clinical care, education, research, policy, and advocacy. The programme brings together Mentor-Mentee Pairs from all over the world to share knowledge and grow the skills needed for Mentees to become leaders.

GLODERM is all around the globe

Over the 12-month programme the Mentees will have monthly online meetings with their Mentor and follow a webinar programme, with other cohort members, to develop and enhance their leadership and global health dermatology skills. There will also be a one-month placement (COVID allowing) where the Mentee will join their Mentor for an intensive in-person skills development phase. The programme will also facilitate a series of networking opportunities, including attendance of an international conference where possible.

We hope to grow a community of future ‘change-makers’ and develop a network of GLODERM Mentees who can offer encouragement and support to each other as they build programmes, start initiatives, train healthcare workers, and improve access to skin health services globally.
