Every student has a mentor from day one until the day they graduate. Mentors for students from first grade to fourth grade are teachers who do research and teach pre-med courses. While as they start taking their clinical medicine courses in fifth grade, they may then have a mentor that is in clinical practice. Students may go to their mentors for academic problems, personal difficulties, or future career counseling. The purpose of doing so is to help students adapt into college life.
Besides the mentor, students get to acquaint with a professor who is currently a practice doctor as well in the beginning of the semester in freshmen year. Such design is to provide an access for students to have someone to inquire if they have questions pertaining to clinical practice fields.
Students are encouraged to do research with professors in clinical practice, research, or the combination of both during summer or winter vacations. This may stimulate their interests in doing experiments and may as well nurture physician scientists in the future.
