Ask. Advise. Inspire
Mentoring is built into every nook, corner, and cranny of this website. Ask questions on the feed of the main page, in the groups, in the forums, by messaging other members, in the comments of our blog posts, or directly to your mentor. We never restrict who you can talk to for mentoring and encourage you to reach out and make as many connections with medical students as you can.
Our Medical Student Mentors
We believe that taking a holistic view of the individual is more meaningful. Mentorship should be democratized and geared towards an individual’s specific circumstances. Our mentors reflect that. We have high performing mentors with near perfect GPA’s, mentors that struggled but succeeded, mentors who are non traditional students, and mentors that represent MD and DO schools.
