Mentors Program

Throughout the year, the Mentor Program will provide students the opportunity to attend 5-6 workshops lead by specialists from various fields. These workshops are created to expand students’ interests and broaden their medical knowledge. They accomplish this by facilitating more in-depth discussions and offering new insights into different specialties and medical topics.

Program Objectives: Heading link

  1. First/second year medical students will spend at least one half day in clinic with a fellow or resident.
  2. The medical student will choose a workshop provided by the program or, with the assistance of the fellow/resident, identify an interesting patient case from the day’s activities and post a brief reflection on the program’s Blackboard site.
  3. Students will submit a formal write-up on one case, which will also include class correlates; a fourth year student will provide formative feedback.
  4. During the Spring semester, students will be expected to collaborate with 3-4 other peers to create and present a poster at the annual Mentors Program Symposium. Faculty and fourth year student judges will evaluate the presentations and give constructive feedback.
