Thank you to everyone who signed up for the mentorship program! Our first round was a HUGE success. We matched over 120 pre-medical students with 65 medical student mentors!!!!
Here an overview of the wide range of students who participated in our first round!
Pre-medical students ranged from college freshmen to non-traditional students in their gap year. Many pre-meds were seeking a medical student’s help in guiding them through the medical school application process, interview prep, and MCAT studying. Additionally, there were many non-traditional pre-meds seeking advice on completing a Special Masters Program vs Post-baccalaureate vs Masters in Public Health. Some pre-medical students had children and families and wanted to be matched with similar medical students. Thankfully, the medical students who signed up had a wide range of experiences! We were able to match pre-medical students with medical students under their individualized requests. Lastly, we had a wide range of races/ethnicities in both sets of students including Hispanic/Latino, Middle Eastern, Asian, Caucasians, and African Americans. We were able to match many minority students together, as requested!
I’m looking forward to connecting more pre-medical students with mentors in the future!
Currently, we are working to improve the second go-around and will re-open the application as soon as possible!
