The mentoring program is a relationship between a high school or post secondary student, or adult with a bona fide educational interest, and an MUSC health care professional who guides the individual for a period greater than 3 months. University Human Resources Management may coordinate such programs in collaboration with the individual directly or through their school. Students are matched with an employee. Student/employee relationship is fostered through a variety of mechanisms such as one-on-one interaction, on-line communication, and on-site facility tours. The individual may observe and ask questions but will not perform patient care duties. Students must be at least 14 years old (16 years old in operating room areas).
