The mentors are amazing!

I really love how we can see them multiple times and really get to know them. They give really great advice in terms of applying to residency, time management, and what to expect in medical school. I really enjoyed having the ability to talk to the mentors on a weekly basis.

I love the program!

I love the program and I love the people who are in it. I can tell that PreMedSKL does a really good job at picking out mentors who are nurturing and who care about the next generation of people who want to go into medicine. I really enjoy the coaching sessions with Dr. Sharma… he pushed us to do better and to participate even if we don’t say the right answer. I really appreciate that.
