The MMA Mentorship Program connects pre-med students, medical students, and residents/fellows, with mentors who help answer questions, provide advice, and offer career guidance.
Connecting Mentors and Mentees
Mentors and mentees connect via email, Zoom, FaceTime, Skype or telephone to set mentorship goals and check-ins according to an agreed upon plan.
Some plans may be short term (two months) while others may be six or 12 months in length.
Regular Check Ins
Check ins occur according to the agreed upon mentorship plan. This could be once a week, once a month, once a quarter, etc.
MMA Check In
MMA staff will check in with mentors and mentees quarterly to see how the relationship is progressing.
Please let us know when the mentor/mentee relationship ends. Mentors and mentees will receive a short survey to help the MMA gather feedback on the program.
At this time, only pre-med students from these programs are eligible for the MMA Mentorship Program:
If you are a pre-med student from another group, program, college or university in Minnesota, please contact your career services program for assistance with mentorship opportunities.
Mentors may be medical students, practicing physicians, residents/fellows, or retired physicians. Mentors and mentees (with the exception of pre-med students), must be current members of the MMA.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Carol Patterson or Juliana Milhofer.
