Become a Mentee

Apply for the Mentorship Programme

The Programme aims to strengthen Mentorship in global health dermatology and increase access to educational opportunities in resource-limited settings worldwide by:

  • Delivering a unique one-on-one mentorship programme between global health dermatology faculty mentors and mentees either living or working in low-resource settings, interested in developing expertise in global health dermatology.
  • Delivering free, high quality dermatology training content for trainees worldwide that will offer opportunities for personal development and build knowledge and expertise in global health dermatology.

The Mentorship Programme is a year long one-on-one Mentoring Programme that connects mentee applicants from low-resource settings with global health dermatology experts from around the world.

Applications for the 2024-2025 Class Mentorship Programme is now closed.

More information on 2025-2026 Class applications coming soon!

Further Information

As a Mentee, you will have opportunities to develop your skills in Global Health Dermatology, including leadership training, setting up global health programs and initiatives, pitching your ideas to funders and/or grant writing, writing papers, and building a career that incorporates global and/or community health. Mentees will have the chance to attend monthly virtual personal development meetings with their Mentor over the course of the 12-month programme. They’ll also participate in a webinar programme with other Mentees in the same cohort to improve and grow their leadership and professional abilities.

We hope that there will also be the opportunity for a two-week placement where the Mentee will join their Mentor for an in-person skills development experience. Mentors and Mentees will have the opportunity to attend an international dermatology conference where possible as a part of the programme. When submitting the application, mentee applicants must attach a written letter of consent from their home institution/supervisor to take time away from training to complete the two-week face-to-face visit.​

The most important thing is that Mentees will be a part of a wonderful lifelong global health dermatology community. We hope that you will be interested in applying to join this fantastic Mentorship Programme!
