Meet Your Mentor Match

Join the AMSA mentorship community where you can connect with physician mentors of diverse backgrounds from across the country.

Join the Community
 

Connect one-on-one with physician mentors and dive deeper into topics and issues not addressed in medical school.

Why do I need a mentor?

Medical school brings challenges and unknowns along the way. But together, we’ll get through it. Medical students routinely seek direct access to practicing physicians — recognizing they have invaluable experience, knowledge and insight to share that can help you navigate medical school and your career path.

Through this community, you will be able to engage in private, group discussions about topics and issues not addressed in medical school with physicians of varying backgrounds from across the country. You’ll receive thought leadership, guidance in a protected environment, and one-on-one mentorship opportunities.
