LUC Mentors


Welcome! LUC Mentors is a program committed to helping undergraduate students explore the path to becoming a physician through one of three different mentoring programs, led by the 1st–4th year medical students at Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine.

The Mentoring Program This is a traditional mentoring relationship where you will meet with your medical school mentor to ask questions about getting into medical school and what it’s like once you’re there.
The Advising Program This relationship is meant to be a short, one-time advice session through email, phone or in person, where premedical students and medical students can discuss a specific question about the med school application process, personal essays, scholarships, MCAT scores, applying to med school after undergrad, and more.
The Shadowing Program This program is designed to take pre-med students to Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine where they will shadow a current med school student and share their medical school experience

To get started come to one of LUC Mentors’ info sessions, where LUC Mentors representatives will guide you through the process of pairing with a potential medical student mentor.
If you cannot come to an info session email an LUC Mentors’ representative lucmentors@luc.edu. To qualify as a mentee, you must be enrolled or an alumni of Loyola University Chicago.
