Mentoring in Medicine

Mentoring in Medicine (MIM) addresses healthcare disparities in urban communities by helping to increase the diversity of the healthcare workforce. MIM starts working with students at a very young age. The program pairs healthcare professionals with socioeconomically disadvantaged students from third grade through health professional school.

MIM’s mission is multifaceted:

  • To ignite students’ interest in health careers
  • To help them execute a strategic plan for success
  • To support students currently enrolled in health professional school so that they can successfully graduate
  • Upon graduation, to assist them in early career development.

MIM also provides observational and clinical experiences. These include:

  • 40 hours of volunteering at Montefiore Emergency Department
  • 20 hours of shadowing board-certified emergency medicine physicians
  • 20 hours of community service
  • An individual strategic planning and mock interviewing session with MIM’s founder and director, Lynne Holden, MD.
