Mentorship Program 2020-2021

BYHP’s Mentorship Program supports the organization’s mission to “connect emerging and passionate healthcare professionals in the Greater Boston area to develop strong cross-sector relationships and build knowledge across all healthcare fields.”

The Program seeks to build mutually beneficial relationships between established mid-to-senior level professionals and early to mid-career professionals or graduate students. Mid-career professionals may apply to be a mentor and/or a mentee depending on their interests and availability. Mentors and mentees will be matched by the BYHP Leadership Team based on their career fields. For example, a mentee who is pursuing a master’s degree in health policy might be matched with a mentor who is a healthcare lobbyist. Mentors and mentees must meet at least once every two months over a six-month period to encourage regular communication and relationship building.


For Program purposes, different levels of professional experience are defined as follows:


Entry level professional

<5 yrs

experience post-undergrad

Mid-career professionals

5-10 yrs


Senior level professionals

10+ yrs

experience post-undergrad

Deadline:  Mentee applications are accepted until December 31, 2020

To become a mentor and/or mentee, please fill out the below application(s) to be matched for the Program cycle beginning in March 2021 and ending in August 2021. Mentors and mentees will be notified of their matches in March and will meet each other at a BYHP-sponsored kick-off event that month.
