Student Success Jobs Program Seeks Mentors

SSJP students are matched with Brigham mentors who offer authentic work experiences, exposure to career paths and an understanding of how their profession contributes to our mission. You can be a part of this program as a mentor by accepting a student to work in your department for seven to 10 hours each week during the school year. Students are paid and supported through the Center for Community Health and Health Equity. Contact Ted Cullinane at tcullinane@partners.org to learn more.
