  • More Ways to Earn: We're giving our mentors more ways than ever to help pay for the costs of becoming a doctor. In addition to 1-on-1 mentoring, earn extra cash by doing something as simple as proctoring a practice exam (mostly paid free time), referring a friend, or attending an Altius event.
  • Maximum Flexibility: You're balancing school, extracurriculars, applications, travel, and more. Other employers may not understand, but we've been where you are, so we do.

Mentor Enrichment Benefits:

  • Improved Medical School Readiness: Altius mentors are reporting an exciting phenomenon: repeatedly teaching basic science concepts as an Altius mentor makes med school easier. As one mentor put it, "I felt like a superhero among my classmates because I knew the basic sciences from the Altius manual so well after teaching them so many times" (Cannon Nelson, MD - USF Morsani School of Medicine).
  • Compelling Addition to Your AMCAS Resume: The key to medical school admissions is standing out. Lots of applicants have been a scribe, or an EMT, or volunteered with a charity...very few have been a 1-on-1 mentor. We'll help you describe your experiences as a mentor in a compelling way that will grab attention and spark conversations.
  • Mentor Leadership Project: Our team of ADCOM officers helps each Altius mentor design and execute a Mentor Leadership Project. The sole purpose of this initiative is to generate a second-to-none leadership experience for your AMCAS application. Because we are ADCOMS, we know how to make this a truly impressive, game-changing addition.
  • FREE Local Gym Membership: So that you can be at your best mentally and physically for yourself and your mentees, all mentors receive a FREE gym membership for as long as you maintain the minimum number of classes and/or students.
  • Travel Discount Program: Applying to medical school can be expensive; especially when you add the cost of airfare, hotels, and rental cars while traveling to interviews. Altius mentors save 10-20% on various travel expenses through this exclusive Altius discount program (HINT: Don't tell anyone, but you can use these discounts for personal travel to.

Keep in mind, the biggest benefit of mentoring a future doctor doesn't fit well into a bullet-point. Our mentors change lives. The satisfaction you feel from watching someone progress from a 490 diagnostic to a 517 MCAT is beyond description. Altius exists to help our students and team members "Achieve great things, amidst great obstacles." Come help us make a may be surprised to learn that it is the mentor who learns and grows the most.
