Marshall Mentor Program

Welcome & Introduction

Welcome to the Marshall Mentoring Program!! The Marshall Mentoring Program is a combined program that provides every undergraduate medial student with the opportunity for early clinical experiences and academic-career advising with a practicing clinical physician. The primary objective is to create collaborative relationships with students that will foster an atmosphere of connection, support and guidance.  The advisory program portion of the program is based on the Association of American Medical Colleges Careers in Medicine (CiM) program and can be referenced at https://www.aamc.org/cim/advisorsandliaisons/advisors/advisingstudents/.
