GVRTH MENTORING PORTAL
Welcome to the GVRTH Mentoring Program
Goulburn Valley Regional Training Hub (GVRTH) is currently coordinating a community mentoring program and professional/academic mentoring program for medical students and trainee doctors. The GVRTH is part of a Commonwealth program, managed by the University of Melbourne’s Department of Rural Health, to improve training opportunities for trainee doctors in rural and regional Australia.
Mentoring is available for the University of Melbourne Rural Clinical School Students and Junior Doctors in GVRTH footprint.

How does matching work?
Matching is facilitated using the information you provide in the recruitment form above.
This program is designed to help empower our doctors and grow the skills of participants through the natural coaching outcomes of a mentoring partnership.
What is Mentorloop and how will it help me?
- Mentorloop is a platform which helps us connect mentors and mentees and provides them a place to communicate.
- Mentorloop will help us match you with a mentor/mentee who has a complimentary location/skills/background to you
- You have access to a resource hub full of helpful hints, tips and tools, so that you get the most from the relationship when you need it.
- To help you, Mentorloop will store correspondence relevant to your mentoring relationship in your Mentor/Mentee ‘Loop’ for easy reference.
What if a person I would like to be my Mentor/Mentee is not on the platform?
Feel free to ask your Program Coordinator, Emily Guthrie, to reach out or you can simply share this link with your contact to register their interest.
What are the time requirements?
You can discuss with your mentoring partner how often you’d like to catch up; however, we recommend a quick coffee catch up / meeting at least once every 4 to 6 weeks to get the full benefits of mentorship.
