MentorCR for Industry Professionals

MentorCR for Industry Professionals: FuseCR Mentoring Program

MentorCR pairs undergraduate students majoring in clinical research with experienced industry professionals in a formal, structured partnership. Engagement opportunities and leadership seminars are offered to further the student’s careers and the industry professional’s mentorship skills, while building professional relationships within the clinical research industry.

Mentors meet with their students 2-3 times per month from November to April. This program advances UNCW's goal of workforce development in health related fields for our regional community and provides crucial applied learning opportunities for our clinical research students.

Mentors have the opportunity to:

  • Support UNCW students by orienting them to the industry and helping them to build networks
  • Help the local economy by preparing better trained students
  • Experience the personal and professional benefits of being a mentor

*Applications for the 2020-2021 academic year will open in May
