Having successfully run a CAPHIA mentoring program for a number of years we are now, and we are seeking approximately 6 individuals to establish a Mentoring Reference Group to further progress and mature this highly valued offering.
Representatives from CAPHIA member institutions are warmly invited to express their interest in establishing this new Reference Group.
The Mentoring Reference Group is chaired by Dr Julie Saunders from the University of Western Australia.

  • Meeting virtually (email and zoom every 6 weeks or so);
  • Contributing to the development of the 2022+ Mentoring Program including a review of previous programs and formation of the new structure,
  • Contributing development of training and support materials and related promotions, reports, publications,
  • Bringing enthusiasm and a diversity of experiences and perspectives for developing individuals through becoming a mentee or a mentor.
