If profiles are the heart of BreakThru, then connections are our soul.

Everyday we’re adding more students and more connections. 

Project BreakThru is where you can obtain free mentoring for medical school. But to get that mentoring you first need to make some connections. We’ll teach you how to find people using our powerful search engine.

BreakThru Mentoring

Mentoring is built into every nook, corner, and cranny of this website. Ask questions on the feed of the main page, in the groups, in the forums, by messaging other members, in the comments of our blog posts, or directly to your mentor. We never restrict who you can talk to for mentoring and encourage you to reach out and make as many connections with medical students as you can.

Our Medical Student Mentors

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.
