Annual Mentoring Program | Student Mentees

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

The RSPH Annual Mentoring Program provides MPH/MSPH/PhD full-time degree-seeking students the unique opportunity to learn and obtain professional advice from alumni and other public health professionals. 

If you are an employer or Rollins alumnus, please see the Mentor Information page.

About the Program 

This annual program runs between September and May and allows students the opportunity to:

  • better understand public health as practiced in the community
  • gain valuable information about agencies and companies
  • begin to build a professional network
  • explore public health careers
  • develop a realistic career plan
  • receive suggestions on how to better prepare for professional life

Hundreds of Rollins graduates have benefited from this program in previous years. It is also a unique opportunity for the mentors to make a personal contribution to the professional development of RSPH students. This program emphasizes professional development and postgraduate aspirations. Students are encouraged to utilize the Action Plan Template as a tool to aid in the development of their goals in the Mentoring Program.

For more information about the program and mentee responsibilities, please see our Mentee Guide.
