          Abstract

          Mentorship is a critical aspect of personal and professional development in academic medicine and helps to improve career satisfaction, productivity, and social networking. However, individuals from communities underrepresented in medicine (URiM) across the training continuum experience difficulty obtaining mentors, even prior to college. The value of near-peer mentorship is less well studied in medicine relative to other fields. The purpose of this mixed methods study is to explore the mentorship experiences of high school student protégés and their medical student mentors, as well as provide a description of the key features of the Doctors of Tomorrow (DOT) program.
