Med 1 Medtorship Survey
Hi everyone,

Hope you're having a great summer so far!

The Medtorship Program is a student-run initiative to help connect new Med 1 students with Med 2s. These Med 2 Medtors will be there for you throughout your medical degree to provide advice, guidance, reassurance, friendship, and support as you get used to life as a medical student.

We'll do our best to choose a Medtor who's a good match for you and accommodate any requests. If you know anyone in the Med 2 class with whom you would specifically like to be matched, there will be a section on this survey where you can tell us. If you don't know anyone in Med 2, don't worry! Helping you connect with a mentor is the purpose of the Medtorship Program. To do this, we want to know a more about you. The questions in this survey are meant to be lighthearted and fun, so if there's anything you don't want to answer you can skip the question. This survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. The deadline for completion is July 19th at 11:59pm.

These responses will not be shared with faculty or other students, so don't worry about coming across like the "ideal med school candidate". Interviews are over. All of the answers will be kept completely confidential - i.e. only Louise and Mehrin will see them. Once you have submitted the survey, the next step is to wait for an e-mail from us with the name and contact information of your Medtor! You can contact your Medtor directly, and there will also be opportunities to connect with them once the school year starts.

We look forward to meeting you in August! In the meantime, feel free to email us at with any comments, concerns, or questions you may have.


Louise Oborne and Mehrin Ahmed
Medtorship Coordinators 2020-2021

P.S. Formatting for the survey works best on your laptop/computer because mobile versions tend to cut off answer options. We apologize for that!

Is there anything else about you we should know to help us match you?
These can be serious and deep, or silly and random! You can also include other information you think would be relevant for us to match you with your Medtor!
Based on the large number of questions we have just asked you, it is highly unlikely that we will be able to match you with a Medtor that exactly fits each of your preferences. Because of this, are there any specific aspects that you would want us to prioritize when matching you with a Medtor (ie. same stream as you, similar age, similar specialty interests, etc.)? If yes, please specify which ones.
Any questions, concerns or comment? If you would like us to contact you about these, please indicate.
