Medical school is challenging and a mentor can offer advice on your education, future career and network opportunities. This helps alleviate some of the stress and emotional strain many students encounter when making a critical long-term decision.
Annually, medical students from the Boonshoft School of Medicine pair up with undergraduate pre-med students to provide encouragement and direction. In the spring, interested students apply to find a mentor while medical students apply to mentor. Each undergraduate is matched with a medical student based on his or her interests, goals and questions. Students are mentored on a variety of topics, including:
- What to include on the medical school application
- How to write an effective personal statement
- How to prepare for an interview
- Study strategies for the MCAT
- Medical education
- Residency selection and Match Day
- Time management
Thank you for your interest, however the Pre Health program has completed this year's matching for medical mentoring.
