Supervision of Visiting International Students and Scholars
Supervise undergraduate students (e.g. students from Brazil who are a part of the Science Without Borders funding program); graduate students (e.g. doctoral students, referred to as sandwich students, who come for approximately six months to experience in an enhanced scholarly environment and have a Canadian experience); and post-doctoral scholars (e.g. scholars; professors at various institutions come to the UofA for six to 12 months to further develop their research program).
Ghana Student Mentorship
This opportunity is a result of a long standing partnership with the University of Ghana. The Faculty of Nursing hosts a group of University of Ghana master's of philosophy students (M’Phil) every year during the spring term. The purpose of the program is to provide M’Phil students the opportunity to further develop their thesis proposal development with guidance from a faculty member as well as providing a Canadian experience. If you are interested in serving as a mentor for a visiting M’Phil student please contact Dr. Sylvia Barton.
