Peer Mentoring

Sewanee Health Professions Society (SHPS) offers a robust peer mentorship program. Incoming students are paired with upper level mentors, giving new students someone to offer advice, answer questions, and guide them through their first year at Sewanee. Mentors and mentees meet throughout the year, frequently on SHPS-sponsored outings to Stirling's Coffee House.


The Office of Medical and Health Programs and SHPS sponsor one-on-one tutoring for students in pre-health courses.  This serves as a leadership opportunity for student tutors and offers pre-health students tutoring at no charge.  The focus of our tutoring is not just on content, but also on study skills and test-taking strategies.
