The GCMAS Education Council coordinates an annual Mentorship Program which runs in coordination with the Annual Meeting of the Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society. The objective of this program is to facilitate the development of supportive relationships between individuals (typically student and professional) where knowledge, skills and experience are shared.
We are continually seeking students and professionals who are interested in participating in the program. If you would like to be a mentor or mentee, please contact GCMAS with the following information:
• Interest in the mentorship program
• Contact information (name, mailing address, email address)
• Mentor or mentee
• Brief description of your research interests
• Current career stage and professional goals
The Education Committee will attempt to match each mentee with an appropriate mentor based on research interests and desired career path. Notification of the mentor/mentee matches will be sent several months prior to the Annual Meeting. Following notification, it is the student’s responsibility to contact their assigned mentor. Tips to facilitate the mentor/mentee relationship are provided on this site.
At the Annual Meeting, we invite the mentor/mentee to arrange for an initial meeting at the Student Mixer. The participants can use this time to discuss educational and career objectives. The mentor will also attend the poster or podium presentation of the student and provide constructive feedback. The mentor may also introduce the student to colleagues and fellow students to help him/her establish a professional network.role of the mentee.pdf role of the mentor.pdf
