"When one finds a true Guru, one conquers half the world."
Guruderma is a unique IADVL Presidential project that connects the experience and understanding of our elders with enthusiasm and zeal of our younger generation. This novel exchange program between senior and junior dermatologists provides an ideal opportunity to interact closely with the mentor and to work on fields of mutual interest for the mentees.
Our Mentor pool comprises of some very senior and learned volunteers with areas of interest ranging from Psoriasis to HIV/AIDS. With over 122 mentee applications for the IADVL Mentorship Program, the response to Guruderma was very encouraging and phenomenal. From the applicants, 22 candidates were selected for the Mentorship and matched with mentors from the first pool based on the choices given by them in the application forms. An objective scoring system was followed for the same.
The selected mentee's will undergo six virtual Mentorship sessions with their mentors with one physical face to face meeting at a mutually acceptable schedule. A token of Rs 10,000 will be given to the mentee to meet the mentor after completion of his/her visit. An assessment will be given by the mentor and feedback by the mentee at the end of the program. A certificate will be presented by IADVL to the mentors and the mentees on completion of the program. In addition, the mentees will also get to interact with few international and national Dermatologists' engaged in leadership program from AAD,WDS and others.
With an aim of promoting growth, stimulating social responsibility and a lifelong lasting bond between the mentor and the mentee, we present to you "GURUDERMA : AN IADVL VIRTUAL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM".
