In this new academic era, CMH LMC & IOD, Lahore has taken the initiative to launch ‘Mentorship Program’ to guide and support the students in their professional and personal development. It is a well-designed and structured program being offered to Year-1 students of various programs including MBBS, BDS and Allied Health Sciences, with a view to accustom them not only to college life but also to prepare them to graduate and join the professional workforce successfully and confidently.
To encourage the interprofessional collaboration from beginning, there is
automated grouping of mentors and mentees from all the programs. A group of 5
to 6 mentees is assigned a mentor from the pool of willing mentors. Each session whether it be a group or one-on-one, is evaluated through feedback by both the mentor and the mentee. The mentees facing any issues are referred to various care bodies of the institute. It is optional from Year-2 onwards, to continue getting the support and guidance from the mentors for academic, personal, professional help and sharing new ideas.
As Galileo Galilei rightly said ‘You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him find it within himself’. Holding the same vision, CMH LMC & IOD Mentorship Program aims at helping the students to reach their true potential by discovering it and learn to solve the problems on their own in their practical life.
