Pay It Forward is a medical student-run mentorship program. The School of Medicine Undergraduate Medical Education (UME) and OASIS (Outreach, Advising, Support and Identity formation for Students) fund the program. The program pairs current medical students with undergraduate mentees from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds to create a more equitable workforce, increase cultural competence, and reduce health disparities. Members of the Pay It Forward Student Interest Group will determine matches as identified by their application profile, interests, specialty of medicine, etc.
