Student Mentor Program

The student mentor program has been a component of the annual ISBS conference since 2012. This program presents an excellent opportunity for ISBS student members to meet with experts in the sports biomechanics field. Each year, we do our best to match mentors and mentees based on their research interest. Mentors that take part in the program come from a range of biomechanical backgrounds and are open to discussing your research, career aspirations, or sharing their experience with you. Students who have participated in the mentoring program in the previous years have found it to be a valuable part of the conference and have made excellent contacts.

How to take part: Participation in the student mentor programme is free of charge and is planned during breakfast on July 17. If you would like to be part of the program, select the option during the online registration process for the conference.

Priority will be given to student members that are new to the program, but we will endeavour to include all interested students.
