Peer Mentorship Program

What is the Peer Mentor Program?

The Department of Health Sciences has developed a Peer Mentor Program to promote the sharing of information among Health Sciences students.  It is designed to provide additional guidance to students who are new to Eastern or Health Sciences or to students who are still trying to find their path within the Health Sciences field.

Who are the Health Science Peer Mentors?

Each year, the department selects several exemplary juniors and seniors to serve as the Peer Mentors.  These students earn academic credit for this role in enhancing the experience and knowledge of many other students majoring in Health Sciences. 

What do the Peer Mentors do?

The Peer Mentors each have one hour per week of open office hours where they are available in the HSC office for students to come in and discuss various aspects of the major, courses, study methods, graduate and professional programs, career options, and much more.  The Peer Mentors draw upon their various experiences at Eastern to help guide students through the major and many resources that are available to them at Eastern. 

The Peer Mentors each also develop and organize a career development workshop each semester to provide students with more information about the career possibilities in Health Sciences and how best to prepare for those careers.  They Students who serve as Peer Mentors have the opportunity to develop into leadership, mentorship, programming, communication, and organizational skills.
