Peer Advising at Boston University School of Medicine
The mission of the Peer Advising Program is to provide non-academic advice and uniquely personal student perspectives about life and learning at BUSM in an informal way to all medical students, primarily in the 1st and 2nd years. Peer Advising is the student complement to the more formal advising provided by the Academies of Advisors. Through the PA Program, medical students will gain informed student perspective on BUSM which is based on their Peer Advisor’s personal experience in medical school. Formal academic advising will continue to be provided by the Deans and Academy Advisors.
The Peer Advisors
The Peer Advisors are students who are committed to student leadership and who show strong commitment to helping new students make the transition from undergraduates to informed, successful medical students.
