UW Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society

Peer Mentoring

Let’s be honest, medical school can be hard – academically, physically, relationally, emotionally. Sometimes a little bit of wisdom and encouragement from those that have gone before you can be hugely helpful. With this in mind, the UW chapter of the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Medical Honor Society has developed a program that facilitates mentorship between MS4 AOA members and interested pre-clinical and early clinical students. There are many potential reasons to seek an AOA mentor. Maybe you want to talk with someone matching into a residency that you are interested in. Maybe you want to connect with someone who has done research as a medical student in order to learn more about how that works. Maybe you just want to chat about what it takes to be healthy and successful during this crazy journey.

If you are interested in being paired up with an AOA mentor, just follow the link below and complete a short Catalyst survey. It’s that easy! Based on this survey data, we will then match you with an appropriate mentor and connect you two via email. For those in the WWAMI region, don’t worry, students in the past have successfully communicated via phone and email.
