One of the issues that you often think about as a student at uni is who would be the right mentor for you. Sometimes you are assigned one, sometimes you get the opportunity to pick one, because of the theme of your subject/research. But no matter how you look at it, the relationship between a mentor and a student is a very important one because it helps both parties expressively contribute to a particular topic they both find interesting. Speaking on the challenging role of being a mentor, Professor Gordon Williams from Harvard Medical School, Harvard University, outlined the need to be more knowledgeable on what a mentor is to a student at uni and how to determine the best fit. The lecture was not only fun to attend but also both very interesting and relevant to me in the various roles and responsibilities I have as a student at uni.
