Doctors Manitoba, in collaboration with the Manitoba Medical Students Association (MMSA) and the Professional Association of Interns and Residents of Manitoba (PARIM), has decided to pause the mentorship program until 2021 in order to redevelop the program to be stronger and more functional in utilizing virtual technology.
We know that the program has been valuable to many medical learners and has provided an opportunity for attendings and residents to give back utilizing their vast knowledge and experience. While many aspects of the program have been successful, the recent pandemic has shown us all that we can do even better.
While this redevelopment is being done, we will continue to provide support to MMSA and PARIM as the new academic year begins. We encourage those mentors with well established connections to their mentees to continue the good work that you are doing in being a valuable support.
If you have specific questions about the proposed redevelopment, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
