Application Form for Students
The purpose of the mentorship program is to bring UTSW students and physicians in the DFW area together. Students will benefit from being paired with a mentor who has a shared interest in medical specialty or topic (i.e. global health or community health). The mentorship can lead to shadowing and/or other medically-related opportunities.
Mentorship program activities:
Other than individual meetings and shadowing opportunities with the physician mentor, APAMSA will host several activities over the year for participants of the program:
> Connecting Over Lunch
6 physicians and 6 APAMSA members will be randomly selected to enjoy a casual lunch together
and converse with each other. It will be held at least twice a year.
> Health Issues Meetings
Physicians will speak at APAMSA-hosted meetings about health-related topic(s) throughout the year. These
meetings are typically held during lunch and are open to all of the UTSW community. It will be held at least
twice a year.
