Alumni Mentorship

Mentorship is a crucial part of the learning experience for Robert Wood Johnson Medical School students. Through a comprehensive inter-professional curriculum, our students learn from expert faculty in the classroom and in clinical and research settings. Alumni mentorship brings something extra to our students’ learning.

If you are interested in becoming more involved as a mentor, please click here to take a brief survey and identify your interests. While its initial purpose was to create opportunities for students underrepresented in medicine, we welcome all alumni to participate. In addition to mentorship, the alumni association hosts Career Night which takes place in March. This is a chance for alumni not only to catch up and network with one another, but also to engage with students, answer their questions, and provide meaningful feedback.

A Day in the Life

This program gives students an opportunity to spend the day with a physician in his or her office or hospital location. Students will receive a first-hand view of a typical day for physicians in various specialties. Students can arrange for half days, full days, or convenient times during holidays or summer vacations.

A Day in the Life includes physicians in 25 different medical specialties.

Alumni who are interested in volunteering to participate in A Day in the Life, please contact Jillian Prior, Manager, Alumni Affairs, at 732-235-6310 or email: jillian.prior@rwjms.rutgers.edu

Students interested in participating in the program, please contact Sonia Garcia Laumbach, MD '99, assistant dean for student affairs, at sgarcia@rwjms.rutgers.edu or 732-235-4690.

Career Night

The 29th Annual Career Night takes place March 7, 2017 at 6:30PM in the Great Hall in Piscataway. Alumni are invited back to campus to speak with students about their specialities in a round-table format. This is a great opportunity to engage with students and help them understand what it is really like to be a physician, as well as network with fellow alumni.

Interested in participating? Register here or please contact: Jillian Prior, Manager, Alumni Affairs. We are always looking for a wide range of specialities and experiences.
