Organized by the director of the mentorship program, Dr. Hanaa Hajeer, Coffee with the mentor event was scheduled for first year medical students on December 11-12, 2017 and aimed at providing a casual, friendly, ice-breaking environment for students and their respective mentors in a way which provided chances for discussing student’s difficulties/problems. More specifically, the event was planned to be helpful for students finding it difficult to schedule a meeting with their mentor, or those hesitant to walk in the mentor’s office without prior introduction, or those who still don’t know who their mentor is. A note of appreciation from Dr. Hajeer has followed, where she stated:

“A successful event is the product of effective team work.

I would like to thank all those of you who made “Coffee with mentor” event a great success.

Facility were meticulous in taking care of all the details, COM staff were extremely helpful, COM faculty were magnificent in their participation and input, and of course MSA and its volunteers were highly supportive.

But success is not possible without great leadership that empower and inspire all of us.

Thank you Dr Khaled and Dr Wael for all your great support for the mentorship program”.

We wish COM students fruitful days and successful career path!
