Mentor & Student Ambassador Programs

Mentors

The first year of medical school involves many changes. In addition to entering a rigorous academic program, this may include a geographic move or incorporating a student schedule into an established life in Portland. The changes are exciting and may at times be overwhelming. To assist in the transition, NCNM has a tradition of mentoring first year students. We offer the pairing of continuing students with incoming students to help them navigate their way through the first year of the Classical Chinese or Naturopathic Medicine Programs.

Student Ambassador Program

Current NCNM students who join the Student Ambassador team will have the opportunity to participate in recruitment activities organized by the Office of Admissions, including participation on student panels and leading campus tours for prospective students during the academic year and at campus events, such as NCNM Exploration and Interviews days. NCNM Student Ambassadors will also be matched with and provide outreach to newly admitted students who have similar interests and backgrounds.

Welcome a new student to NCNM and earn community education units. Sign up for the Student Ambassador program.
