CHIUS Mentorship

The Community Health Initiative by University Students (CHIUS) is a student-run volunteer program based on a service-learning framework. Located at the Downtown Community Health Centre in the Downtown Eastside (DTES), the CHIUS clinic links health science students with local residents in a partnership designed to promote community-centered learning for students as well as empowerment and improved health outcomes for DTES residents.

CHIUS is currently recruiting professional mentors for the upcoming year. This is a great opportunity to share our experience and expertise with a group of eager health science students in an environment outside of your workplace. We are seeking mentors from within all of the following health care disciplines: Dietetics, Social Work, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy and Nursing. We kindly request a minimum time commitment of one four hour shift per month for which an honorarium will be provided.
