These relationships are meant to provide support, guidance, advice, and friendship throughout your entire medical school career. Our goal is to match first year students with compatible second year students. However, to do so, we need your help!

Complete our online questionnaire to describe yourself and what you are looking for in a mentor. We will utilize this information to make sure you have the perfect match and the best experience possible.
