The Biopatrika Biopharma Industry Mentor Match Program (BIMP) offers B.E./B. Tech, Masters, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows the opportunity to select a mentor from a pool of experienced personnel, composed of industry and pharma professionals.
The program aims to help researchers coming from vivid backgrounds better understand the career options available within the industry, as well as how to successfully transition into a career of their interest. In addition, the program aims to provide participants with a meaningful network of industry professionals.
We understand the problems faced by life science students and believe that mentorship is a potential solution to these challenges. There is a need to bridge the gap between academia and industry and provide career guidance to students early on to help advance them in their profession.
BIMP is a unique setup not only beneficial for the mentee in industry selection but the mentors also get a chance to develop leadership skills by guiding an individual to the right career path.
- One-on-one mentoring (mentors and mentees will be paired based on common areas of interest)
- Career guidance from experienced professionals
- Flexible program tailored to your schedule (via Slack Workspace)
- Networking opportunities
