Become a change-maker
GLODERM brings together a unique community of dermatology professionals with a focus on Global Health Dermatology. Connecting these individuals, at all career stages, who are passionate about the advancement of skin health in resource-limited communities, locally and globally is central to GLODERM’s mission.
The Mentorship Programme is a cornerstone of GLODERM’s sustainable and integrated approach to improving dermatologic clinical care, education, research, policy, and advocacy. The programme brings together Mentor-Mentee Pairs from all over the world to share knowledge and grow the skills needed for Mentees to become leaders.
Over the 12-month programme the Mentees will have monthly online meetings with their Mentor and follow a webinar programme, with other cohort members, to develop and enhance their leadership and global health dermatology skills. There will also be a one-month placement (COVID allowing) where the Mentee will join their Mentor for an intensive in-person skills development phase. The programme will also facilitate a series of networking opportunities, including attendance of an international conference where possible.
We hope to grow a community of future ‘change-makers’ and develop a network of GLODERM Mentees who can offer encouragement and support to each other as they build programmes, start initiatives, train healthcare workers, and improve access to skin health services globally.
Become a Mentee
The mentorship programme will help link mentee applicants, who either live or work in low-resource settings, with vetted global health dermatology experts for a one-on-one mentorship experience lasting 12 months. The aim of the mentorship period will be to enhance the mentees’ skills relevant to global health dermatology, including capacity building, setting up programmes, building a career and incorporating global and/or community health. Applicants will be selected through a competitive process.
