Buddy Program Committee
At DY Patil Deemed to be University, we focus not only on teaching and learning on the campus but empowering students with guidance, confidence, and skills necessary to succeed in life. Higher education comes with challenges and complexities of dealing with curricular and extracurricular activities in college and post-college life. A mentor guides the mentee to achieve academic excellence and helps them navigate through the uncertainty and anticipation that they face. Research has demonstrated that mentoring can have a positive impact on the emotional and mental health of the mentee.
The Buddy Program” was started in DY Patil Deemed to be University, School of Dentistry in the year 2018 under the ambit of the mentor-mentee program. The program is designed to guide and aid the new students entering into the field of dentistry and into the new chapter of their lives. Each student is assigned a mentor, who shall guide and assist them with all problems and troubles throughout their 5 years of BDS. Special emphasis is laid on counseling keeping in mind the individuality and uniqueness of their situation. Regular meetings are conducted by the mentors to check up on their students and to gauge their progress. The Buddy program strives for the comprehensive development of the students.
