The ACOEP Mentor Program


ACOEP is proud to unveil the new Regional Mentorship Program, an exciting initiative that provides all osteopathic medical schools with a team of mentors dedicated to helping students navigate the challenging world of medical school. Students benefit from these one-on-one relationships that are an incredible way for physicians to give back to the medical community and to make a substantial difference in the practice of medicine.

Each mentor team consisting of one board member, one regional mentor, and multiple supporting mentors, provides honest, individual advice, insight and guidance. Students can approach mentors individually to ask questions about everything from board examinations to residency programs.

Students interested in finding their mentors should contact their school’s EM Club president who can provide you with contact information. Or, if you are a 3rd or 4th year away from school, you can email acoep.mentorship@gmail.com for a list of mentors in your area.

Physicians interested in becoming mentors must:

  • Be an active member of ACOEP
  • Be either a practicing physician or a resident in at least their 3rd year
  • Meet the specific requirements for their level of mentorship as stated in the Mentor Basics Standards,  that you can download here.

Everyone has a unique perspective to share. Find some topics to kick start the conversation here.
