The UC College of Medicine has a well-established and highly utilized Peer-to-Peer Tutoring program.
Second- third- and fourth-year medical students as well as students from the MD/PhD program serve as peer tutors for the first- and second-year medical students. Tutoring is offered in all of the major science blocks.
The goal of tutoring sessions is to further explain and reinforce what was taught in lectures. Tutors are skilled at helping students identify key concepts and high yield material, as well as helping students to improve study skills and habits.
Tutoring is provided primarily in small group settings and is free of charge.
Students can check for small group tutoring sessions via the Medonestop portal. After logging in, go to "Quick Links" - “I want a tutor”. Tutors post sessions to the calendar by course and students can click on a session to sign up.
Email Carrie Martin, Office of Student Affairs, UCCOM, if you have tutor program questions.
