Med Mentors has a dual mission:
1) to provide free mentorship to those who may not have access to it, and
2) to provide 1-on-1 professional advising by an expert team of physicians.
With many collective years of experience advising pre-medical and medical students, we have an expert team of physician who are eager to help you in your journey to applying to medical school or residency.
What sets us apart from other advising companies:
We each have years of admissions committee, mentoring, editing and advising experience.

Med Mentors’ mission is to build a supportive community of aspiring physicians.

For our medical students who serve as role models, we hope they will build leadership and advising skills while giving back to younger generations.
Our team of medical students and pre-medical students run our free mentorship program.
