Moving the needle through MENTORSHIP
"A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself." --Oprah Winfrey
Your Oregon Medical Education Foundation continues to create innovative programs that help students get the most from their medical education.
This Spring, we especially need your help with launching our newest initiative - a collaborative, statewide effort to help ALL MD, DO & PA students in Oregon find a mentor. Why mentorship? Because students desperately need this kind of help to get back on track following the pandemic.
Do you remember your own mentor? Have you ever been a mentor yourself? We invite you to make a donation in their honor and keep that memory alive! All of us has some help getting we are today, and this is YOUR chance to keep paying it forward.
As important as mentors are, the sad reality is that only 1/3 of students ever find one. Through our program, both Mentors and Mentees will have an easier time accessing our caring community, even from their mobile device! We are partnering with some incredible organizations and leveraging technology to build a sustainable, engaging program where everyone has a place.
Your gift will change lives and strengthen our healthcare system from within.
Every dollar helps, so please give what is meaningful to you. If a smaller amount on a monthly basis is a better fit, we'd love to have your support that way too! However you do it, we are excited to have your support.
