QNS Mentorship Program
QNS launched its first mentorship program in April 2022. Our Student and Education Committee, led by Dr. Thomas Zurfluh, successfully matched 16 licensed clinical neuropsychologists with mentees ranging from first-year graduate students to postdoctoral fellows. At the end of the 6-month program, mentees and mentors can extend their commitment for another 6-month cycle if they wish. We will collect outcome data and report it here after the 6 month mentor cycle is complete.
We expect our next Mentorship cycle to begin in October 2022. If you are interested in being a mentor, please email Dr. Zurfluh at firstname.lastname@example.org. Potential mentees, please check back here to apply in October 2022.
Mentors and mentees co-create the mentorship process.
Dyads were matched based on needs and interests expressed in the application process. Some mentees had actionable goals, while others were looking for connection and support from a Queer neuropsychologist.
