Mentorship Programs

Student at the Library

The University of Ottawa thrives on building strong mentorship programs that can help students to gain better understanding and support during their academic endeavours. Mentorship programs are an opportunity to share the knowledge, skills, information and perspectives of what is entailed for successful growth during medical school. We believe that helping each other can only enrich every student’s experience and help promote a positive work-life balance. Through our various mentorship programs we are able to address different perspectives and ideally help a vast array of students.


Student Mentoring Centre

“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

The Student Mentoring Centre is a student-run initiative that is designed to support 1st year students in the MD Program in developing new learning strategies and skills that will allow them to succeed in their medical studies.

Mentors are 2nd year students that have been trained to provide guidance and academic support. 

They offer:

  • Individualized support
  • Study skill techniques
  • Tutorials and workshops
  • Tips for success!
