Each MD-SEE participant will be assigned a clinical neurology faculty mentor who will act as an advisor and guide in encountering serious diagnostic challenges. The mentor will help the student with the diagnosis of a patient, the development of a case study, and the final presentation of that case study.

Over the course of the program, the student will establish a meaningful and long-lasting relationship with the physician mentor, a relationship that often plays an influential role in an individual's decison to pursue medicine.
