medi-gators peer mentorship program

Currently only available for University of Florida and Santa Fe College students.

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.
