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
The application cycle closed on January 23, 2019. Those interested may check this webpage in December for the 2020 application cycle.
The first Mentoring Event is on January 31, 2019 at 7pm.
