Application Period Open Now!

IADMS Members Only

The IADMS Early Career Mentorship Program is designed to connect undergraduate and postgraduate students pursuing further education and careers in dance medicine and science to professional members in the field. The mentorship program will foster a welcoming community for dance science newcomers by enabling experienced members to share their knowledge and experiences with student and recent graduate members, further developing their leadership and mentoring skills. The mentorship program will, therefore, support both mentee and mentor members of the community, and contribute to the longevity of dance medicine and science by providing education, networking, and professional development opportunities.

At this time, IADMS is accepting applicants for the 2022-2023 Mentorship cycle (IADMS membership is required to apply). Applicants for both mentor and mentees can be paired in person at the 32nd Annual Conference or virtually if unable to attend the conference.  After reviewing the mentorship program goals and agreements, pairs will clarify the Mentorship Motive to be addressed over the next year, agree on a broad plan of action and a schedule of between one to four follow-up mentoring sessions in-person or online.
