Become a Mentor
With BreakThru Mentoring!
If you’re thinking about being a mentor, congratulations on taking this incredible first step in changing lives!
To Our Medical Student Mentors
Some places claim that only the very best medical students should mentor and advise others. Who gets to decide who the best medical students are? Do we use grades to determine an individuals worth? Are only the top 1% of a class worthy to be advisors? We believe that taking a holistic view of the individual is more meaningful.
Mentorship should be democratized and geared towards an individual’s specific circumstances. Our mentors reflect that. We have high performing mentors with near perfect GPA’s, mentors that struggled but succeeded, mentors who are non traditional students, and mentors that represent MD and DO schools.
To all the medical students out there who want to pay it forward: BreakThru Mentoring is your home. We hope that together we can all help premeds in ways that we all wish we were helped.

Introducing... The BreakThru Mentorship Program
What Pre-Meds Get from BreakThru Mentoring
How YOU Benefit as a BreakThru Mentor!
So How Does the Mentoring Program Work?
BreakThru Mentoring Vision: Our vision is to facilitate mentor / mentee relationships with the best mentors for a premedical student: you, the medical student. Having just gone through the process, you understand best what they need to know, what obstacles will come in the way, and how to avoid potential pitfalls.
Who Are You Mentoring: Premedical students! In particular, a premedical student that lines up with your background, accomplishments, school and future goals. We feel these are important variables when making the perfect mentor-mentee match.
Payment Model: We know your time is valuable, so we think you should be compensated as such! The payment structure is dependent on the number of mentees that you’ve taken in total. This will look like:
- 1st Student: $100
- 2nd – 9th Student: $150 per student
- 10th+ Student: $200 per student
The reason this is laid out this way is simply to cover the costs of overhead. So the more students you mentor, the more you’ll be able to earn on a case-by-case basis.
Bonus: If a mentee asks for your specifically, you’ll earn an extra $25 for that student!
Your Benefits Explained
Your time is valuable.
Make up to $33 / hour mentoring each student, but spending as little as 15min a week working with them.
As a physician, you’ll be a teacher and a guide for your patients. Honing these skills will prepare you for any future goal you have as a doctor.
Share your wisdom and your story with your pre-medical peers and watch as you inspire a new generation of physicians!
Help play a role in our scholarship fund through the option of donating part or all of your pay! We’ll match your donation and add your name to our list of donors.
If you’re not looking for a job, you can donate the entirety of your payment plan, and use this as an opportunity to volunteer.
As we grow, you’ll have continued access to medical students, residents and physicians across the country.
With just a little time commitment, earn up to $200 per student. Keep the money yourself or donate part or all of it to our Scholarships!
15 Minutes a week over 6 months, comes out to only 6 hours of time. However, we encourage you to spend as much time with students as you want!
Thanks to your help, 100% of our previous students feel more comfortable applying to Medical School after the program.
