Alumni Mentoring Opportunities

UT Southwestern Medical School alumni can help the next generation of physicians by participating in two programs – the Bed & Breakfast Program and the Day with a Doc Program.

Bed & Breakfast Program

UT Southwestern Medical School alumni provide overnight accommodations and/or other support to senior medical students traveling for internship interviews.

Q: Am I obligated for all activities?

A: No, you can choose only those that are convenient.

Q: Am I obligated for the entire year?

A: No, students understand that their requests might not be convenient with your schedule.

Q: Is this really important?

A: Yes. It saves students money, gives students a chance to meet you, and gives you a chance to meet our current medical students. 

Q: How does it work?

A: First, sign up or update your contact information on Alumni Affairs' restricted website. Students can then contact you directly. If their request is convenient for you – you and the student work out the details.

Q: More questions?

A: Contact the Alumni Affairs Office.

Day with a Doc Program

The Day with a Doc Program is for students who want to know more about a particular specialty and a typical day as a physician.

Once in medical school, time with physicians serves a new purpose because difficult decisions remain – particularly the decision about specialty. Day with a Doc is designed to connect students with doctors and their experiences.

There is no substitute for the opportunity to benefit from the experience of a practicing physician, particularly someone with whom the student shares at least one thing in common – UT Southwestern.
