Get Involved with PRISM

PRISM mentors are students in the Northwestern University Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) and are committed to working with high school students to share an enthusiasm for careers in science and medicine. Mentors and students work in small groups that remain consistent for an academic year, enabling the formation of long-term mentoring relationships.

Sessions are held every other Tuesday (approximately three hours of time per session), and we expect our mentors to be present for every session. If you are a student in the MSTP and would like to become a mentor, please contact MSTP student leaders at
