How It Works
- Fill out the registration page. Student registration will occur between June 1-30 and alumni registration will occur between July 1-31. You will receive an electronic confirmation once it is submitted. SMD’25 will have the opportunity to register in August.
- Matching will occur in August. Once you are matched, you will be asked to fill out the mentorship program agreement. We suggest an initial conversation (phone, Skype/Zoom, etc.) During this initial conversation, there is a worksheet for the pair to complete together that will help set expectations and goals can be established.
- The UVA Medical Alumni Association will send prompts and reminders to check-in that will coincide with different milestones throughout the year (e.g. Transition Week, Step 2 preparations and Match Day)
Students and alumni will keep their match for one academic year, August-May. At the conclusion of the period, each party will receive a survey to evaluate the program. There will be a mid point survey that will be sent to both alumni and students in January to check in with progress.
