About Mentoring Circles

As a part of the UMMS Institutional Diversity Plan to support students from under representative groups, UMMS has launched a series of Mentoring Circles. The objective of Mentoring Circles is to provide a diverse group of medical and research students exposure to faculty who serve as “Mentors for a Day.” Students and faculty meet in a team-based setting that allows for informal dialogue, sharing, and learning across the circle. The program provides participants with enhanced professional growth, varied perspectives through peer and faculty mentoring, and an expanded network of colleagues.


Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions.
