Question special

As a student body leader in medical school, I was often confronted by classmates who felt that establishing a mentor-mentee relationship, especially as a first year medical student, was very daunting and difficult. Our school began looking into ways to improve this experience- Dr. Napolitano and Dr. Fitzgerald were both leaders in this important effort. What are some successful or unsuccessful approaches to creating stronger mentorship programs within medical schools that facilitate the development of these relationships for new students?
