Young Women In Bio-Metro New York's mentorship program with Weill Cornell Medicine, now in its fifth year, got off to a roaring start on 5/21, thanks to WCM medical school student-mentors, led by Emily Lang and Elora Busa. A new cohort of nearly 30 NYC high school girls interested in medicine as a career and a new group of WCM first-year medical school student-volunteers met for the first of three sessions, with two more to follow in Fall 2019 and Winter 2020. This month's meeting centered on case studies, similar to those provided to real-life medical school students. Several dozen girls applied to the program, which has a simple application process that is open to both public and private school students. New mentees come from a diverse group of schools in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and we encourage more to apply next year: The application process begins in March 2020.
