Medical student mentorship is currently in its infancy in Namibia and a lot still needs to be done to improve the quality of medical students as well as medical intern mentorship in the country. Gerrit wishes to develop his existing leadership skills during the fellowship as well as broaden his network with whom he will work to develop the mentorship program at the university. On return to Namibia, He would like to see the mentorship program being effectively rolled out at the university as well as at the respective teaching hospitals in the country.
