AHEC Connect

AHEC Connect is a three-month mentorship program that matches undergraduate students interested in medicine with a current medical student. Throughout the program, mentees gain insight from conversations with medical students, while medical students get to impart knowledge and experience to younger students. This free program requires minimal time commitment but yields impactful results. The application closes on January 1st, 2021.



Mentor Information

Any current medical student is welcome to apply to be a mentor. Throughout the program, mentors will be expected to contact their mentee by phone or email at least once per month for the duration of the program. Topics are provided to the mentors as a guideline, but mentor discretion can be used. Mentors should expect to spend approximately 1 hour per month communicating with their mentee.
