Office of Medical Education - Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Program



Once in medical school, students may find that previous methods of studying are no longer effective in producing positive results. For many students, this may be the first time they have faced the possibility of failing an exam or not keeping up with course material. The PAL program aims to support student success by providing the resources needed to improve academic performance.  This service is available free of charge to current medical students who have been referred by the Office of Students Affairs and/or a Course Director.

Who are the Peer Tutors?

Peer tutors are medical students who have successfully completed the courses for which they provide tutoring and have been recommended by course directors due to their exceptional academic performance. Tutors are paid through the Office of Academic Affairs.

Who are the Tutees?

Tutees are medical students who are eligible to receive tutoring according to PAL guidelines.

Any students needing additional information or questions, contact Dolly Anadkat, Learning Specialist, in the Office of Medical Education.
