M1/M2 Mentorship

Between studying, figuring out how to use Vitals, and finding the underground tunnels or the scrub office, the first year of medical school can be overwhelming if you don’t have someone to turn to.

Luckily, each year a group of amazing OSUCOM M2s volunteer to be mentors to students in the M1 class! These M2 mentors help guide M1s through the intricacies of med school.

First year students interested in being paired with an M2 mentor should fill out the this form by August 8, 2018 at noon. The M1-M2 Mentor Reveal will be at 6:30 pm in Meiling 160 on August 8, 2018. Please contact osucomhim@gmail.com with any questions.

We hope to see you there!
