Longitudinal Academic Mentorship Program (LAMP)
Jimmy Tseng, Stephanie Park
The Longitudinal Academic Mentorship Program (LAMP) is a peer-to-peer, physician-to-student mentorship initiative for the medical trainees at the University of Toronto. Participants are organized in groups which consist of 7-8 students, 1 resident and 1 physician. The mentorship relationship is longitudinal in nature, and groups individually meet once a month in an informal setting (ex. Dinner, escape rooms, nature walks, etc) to share stories and advice. Currently in its pilot stages, LAMP is organized by the Medical Society under the VP Education portfolio, under the guidance of representatives from the MD Program and OHPSA.
