Pre-med is tough, we know. We've all been there (seriously). We didn't get through it alone, though, and so want to help you navigate the waters of undergrad and the application process. Your mentor will be around to answer the tough questions and give you the advice from someone who has successfully handled the prerequisite classes and the application process. Your mentor may meet you for coffee, take you to a medical lecture, or practice their physical exam skills on you (not really...but maybe...bring a gown just in case). These mentors are students that have absolutely no influence on your admission to the UNC School of Medicine, so nothing is off limits. However, just because we don't get to make the phone calls doesn't mean that we don't want you to get the phone call one day! So stop nagging your boyfriend/girlfriend/roommate/parents with your pre-medical anxieties. Bring them to us. We'll confirm or deny every one, and maybe even introduce a few more! Come on! It's fun!
I'm sure you're asking yourself, "How to I meet this amazing medical student?"
Easy. Just fill out this form.
We'll do our best to match you up with someone who shares your undergraduate experiences so that you get the best possible (and most sympathetic) mentor.
Also, feel free to email us with any questions or concerns regarding the program. But save the tough questions for your mentor!
