Mentoring and Support
Faculty Mentor Bank
Outside of the formally assigned Advising Deans, each student has access to a bank of faculty mentors. These faculty members have expressed a concerted interest in developing mentoring bonds with medical students during their preclinical years and beyond. If you are a Washington University Medical Student who is interested in accessing the Faculty Mentor Bank, and possibly connecting with a faculty mentor, please click here
