LCOM Mentors Program
The LCOM Mentors Program pairs medical students who are members of groups underrepresented and underserved in medicine* with faculty members and/or residents who have common interests and goals.
The LCOM Mentors program is designed with the busy schedules of both faculty and medical students. The program supports mentor-mentee pairs through programmatic features such as training, social events, professional development tips, and workshops.
An LCOM Mentor can help medical students:
• Understand how to “navigate” LCOM culture, systems and colleagues
• Establish productive courses of academic progress and scholarship
• Develop effective strategies in coordinating academic and life balance throughout medical school and beyond.
This relationship can support the medical student (the mentee) to become familiar with institutional expectations, networks, and practices that are relevant to productivity and advancement at the Larner College of Medicine.
