Health Career Mentoring


Are you looking to work in psychology, health sciences, public health or health promotion? Our Health Career Mentoring program can help you get there.

This three-month program matches motivated, final-year undergraduate Faculty of Health students enrolled in non-clinical courses with experienced industry mentors, to help them gain insight and enhance their graduate employability.


Becoming a mentee gives you a chance to access experienced industry professionals and benefit from the expertise and insights that they have gained throughout their careers. Through the program you will:

  • receive one-on-one mentoring as you prepare for graduation
  • get advice and guidance on job searching, applications and interviews
  • learn more about career opportunities and industry insight

  • understand the steps you need to take to achieve your career goals.


  • You are an undergraduate student enrolled in your final year of a psychology, health sciences, or public health and health promotion course.
  • You haven't found suitable graduate-level employment but hope to commence employment after you graduate.
  • You are motivated and willing to proactively enhance your employability.
