Exposing Underrepresented Students to the Field of Medicine

UC Med Mentors is led by Dr. Charles Cavallo, and was founded in 2001 by Dr. Wan Lim as an opportunity for UC medical students, from all four classes, to reach out to the youth of Cincinnati while they are undergoing their training to be physicians. The program serves as a cultural exchange for the medical students, and provides opportunities for them to gain insight into the lives of children in Cincinnati. UC Med Mentors serve mentees from grades K-12 from the Cincinnati Public School system. The emphasis is on reaching out to the younger students in elementary and middle schools.

The Mission of UC Med Mentors:

I.     To be involved in the academic and intellectual growth of the mentees.

II.      To enrich the lives of the mentees

II.     To encourage the mentees to be computer literate

Target Schools:
