Requesting a Peer Mentor

Students who have attended a Health Professions Information Session and established an HPAO file may request a peer mentor. Peer mentors are a group of dedicated, experienced, and trained students planning a career in the health professions who volunteer their time to assist other SDSU students. You will be matched with a peer mentor based on the information you provide and your health profession interest. In order to request a peer mentor, please visit the Health Professions Advising Office to request a Peer Mentor Request form.

Ask a Peer Mentor

Our peer mentors are also available throughout the week for quick questions or advice on how to become more involved on campus or in the community. You do not need to be assigned a peer mentor in order to utilize the Ask a Peer Mentor hours. If you have basic questions about health profession requirements or becoming more involved, please drop by and talk to a peer mentor at your convenience.
