SGU Strategic Mentoring Sessions — Designed by highly successful SGU alumni
First and second year students benefit from partnering with senior students to better anticipate potential barriers to their progress. Your SGU mentor helps you identify what you need to do to be successful, not only at SGU but also in the Match.
Mentoring sessions are often spent:
• Assessing student progress and likelihood of success on upcoming exam(s)
• Administering advice and affirmation
• Creation of an individualized USMLE plan and suggestions on the best resources to use
• Identifying your weaknesses and priorities, and discussing solutions
• Recommendations specific to your circumstances, study methods, timeline, goals and preparation
• Time management, motivating & study/life balancing tips
The SGU Strategic Mentoring Sessions cost $199, with any additional time billable at the tutor’s hourly rate. The session is conducted online through our video conferencing and screen sharing platforms, GoToMeeting or Zoom. After the strategic mentoring session, your mentor will follow up with you via email to reiterate recommendations on how to take your preparations to the next level, whether through independent studying or regular 1:1 tutoring.
SGU ERAS Consulting
We understand that SGU students have different needs when applying to residency. SGU students cannot physically access the offices of guidance counselors. Class sizes are much larger. Moreover, general rules that apply to US medical graduates don’t necessarily apply to SGU students, for example, deciding on how many programs to apply to.
This is why we have a dedicated team of residency consultants (both residents and attendings) from SGU that can help coach you through your ERAS application. Not only can they share with you how they were successful in the match but they can offer tailored advice to your unique situation. Click here to learn more about the ERAS services we offer.
