Health Professions Mentorship Program

Program Mission

To equip pre-health freshmen with an academic, professional, and personal foundation that will promote success both in college and a career in healthcare.

Program Details

Throughout the academic year, mentors will help freshmen mentees grow personally, professionally, and academically, in addition to developing core competencies that make a successful future healthcare professional.

We are looking for mentors who will take the initiative in organizing meetings and cultivating creative opportunities for the group to engage in. They will serve as the leaders that the health professions team relies on to keep the program running strong.
