medi-gators peer mentorship program

Launched in the Spring of 2024 in collaboration with the UF Career Connections Center and UF Pre-Health Advising, the Medi-Gators Peer Mentorship Program is intended to provide pre-health students an approachable platform to seek guidance, support, and advice from peers who are further along in the pre-health journey. Our team of Peer Mentors have gone through pre-health advising training and leadership so as to cultivate an inclusive and informative experience for students.

For the 2024 Summer A semester, Pre-Health Peer Mentorship drop-in office hours will take place on Mondays and Fridays from 12pm to 1pm via zoom (May 20th-June 28th).

Students may visit our office hours to discuss topics related to:

  • Health career exploration
  • Clinical experiences
  • Leadership
  • Clinical and non-clinical volunteering
  • Exam preparation and strategies
  • Shadowing
  • Mentorship
  • Research
  • Growth years
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Application components and preparation
  • Campus resources
  • and more!
