Violet Society Program

The Violet Society Program, the Mentor & Career Advising Program for NYU medical student provides medical students with consistent advising throughout medical school, from their first experiences at orientation through graduation. The goal of this program is to enhance students' professional development by providing personal and career-oriented support through individual and small group meetings with their advisors and participation in developmentally appropriate programs, events, and workshops that foster community building and student wellness. The Violet Society Program is not meant to guide a student into a specific Residency. Advisors will, however, be an expert resource regarding clinical, research, and educational opportunities available to students, in addition to providing information on support services guiding students with personal and career exploration.
