UKZN Intern Mentorship Programme

The School of Clinical Medicine (SCM) in partnership with DoH has set up the UKZN INTERNSHIP COMMITTEE and INTERNSHIP MENTORSHIP SERIES. This partnership is supported by Investec. The Mentorship Series aims to support and guide KZN Interns with career guidance, working life orientation, financial, physical and mental wellness. This platform will also help forge relationships for interns to collaborate and support each other.

The monthly programme includes career guidance presentations from various medical and surgical disciplines, identification of mentors as well as wellness and financial planning for the young interns. This platform will create and establish access to the academic platform for those interns who would like to start preparing for research and part 1. This initiative is supported by all HOD’s in the School of Clinical Medicine.
