The mentee-mentor program strives to connect underclassmen with upperclassmen of similar major interests so that they can seek assistance in adjusting to the pre-med expectations and UTD lifestyle. This has been a successful program in the past, and we ask that the upperclassmen of this year continue to work towards making this program a success! Being a mentor is a leadership position worthy of a spot on your medical school application!
In order to appropriately pair students, we will consider classification and major along witth other potential areas of interest such as research, shadowing, scribing, volunteer experience, and more. Like last year, we hope to continue having more social events in the upcoming school year, whether it be virtual or in person, to integrate out community and strengthen relationships between mentees and mentors.
