Mentors in Healthcare - MiH

The Mentors in Healthcare (MiH) program was created to provide students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds (African American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, or Native American) the opportunity to meet and network with senior students, faculty, and professionals with similar backgrounds.

Here is what you can expect from MiH:

Large Events- MiH hosts at least two large events (Fall and Spring) within the academic year. This is an opportunity for students to network with mentors over a dinner.

Lunch Program- This program allows a student to take a mentor out to coffee/lunch.

Here are some common questions students like to ask mentors:

  • What do you do to stay motivated? How do you deal with stress?
  • How do you balance your work and home life?
  • What is the best piece of advice you can give me?
  • What does empowerment mean to you?
  • Can you tell us about a difficult situation you encountered and how you handled it?
  • Have you ever felt like someone was trying to undermine you? How did you handle it?
  • Have you had a difficult working relationship with a colleague? How did you address it?
  • Do you have a mentor? How have they influenced you?
  • What are you most proud of? What is your most awarding accomplishment?
  • If you could do it all again, what would you do differently?
