The Triangle Global Health Consortium mentorship programs provide a variety of opportunities for mentors and mentees to connect. We strive to create an environment which benefits each participant - mentees and mentors - as well as our local and worldwide communities.
Mentees have opportunities to gain knowledge and skills in advancing global health, establish new connections, and discover opportunities for internships and employment.
Mentors are able to build connections with students and early career professionals, expand their own professional growth, and develop leadership skills.
Our local global health community benefits as we recruit and develop top talent, create more engaged young leaders, and build strong connections across institutions and sectors.
Communities worldwide will ultimately benefit from a more skilled and experienced workforce dedicated to improving global health.
We hope you will take advantage of the mentorship opportunities below!
Mentor Cohort Program
Through our mentorship cohorts, mentees and mentors are matched into small groups with 3 to 4 mentees per mentor. Each mentorship cohort meets monthly. Mentees apply to participate in the mentorship cohorts.
Please note: Only Consortium members are eligible to apply to participate in the mentorship cohorts. Not sure if you're a member? If you are a student or employee at one of our member organizations, you are automatically a member! Just use the email address that reflects your member institution affiliation (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc.) when you fill out your mentee application.
Mentor Mondays are 45 minute webinars held one Monday per month featuring a different global health professional each month who will share information on their own career path, advice for starting or advancing in your global health career, important skills for a career in global health, and more. There will be time for questions and answers at the end of each Mentor Monday session.
Global Health Happy Hours
Hosted from 5:30-7:00 pm on a Thursday each month, the goal of this casual happy hour is to continue building strong connections and promote idea sharing across the Triangle’s diverse global health community. Locations will change monthly – rotating between Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Durham.
Everyone is welcome! Members and non-members are encouraged to attend.
Triangle Global Health Career Center
The Triangle Global Health Career Center offers a central location for global health job seekers to search and apply for jobs, upload their resume, and create job alerts.
Consortium member organizations gain exposure to thousands of students and professionals interested in global health, maximizing their ability to recruit top talent.
