Mentoring is a reciprocal relationship. Both the mentor and the mentee receive immeasurable benefits from participation in the arrangement. Students receive guidance to aid in the academic matriculation process, while developing/enhancing the skills necessary to begin their public health careers. By sharing their experiences, providing career advice and academic guidance, mentors receive the gratification that comes with helping students achieve greater academic, personal, and professional success.
