"Every successful person has a team of people rallying behind them. Medical school isn't something that can be done by yourself. My mentor is an integral part of my 'team,' and he has made this journey a little easier."

"The LSK Mentorship Program has been invaluable throughout my medical school career. My mentor has gotten to know me well in the past two years and has given me tailored advice and guidance that otherwise I would not have received."

"Dr. McFadden is an amazing physician who allows me to see the real him. He gives me a front row seat behind the scenes of being a physician: the great, good and not so pleasant pieces. We can all shadow a physician, but it takes a real mentor to show us real life."



Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
