Socratic Med: Mentors for Medicine

Our newly formed nonprofit organization, Socratic Med Inc., strives to expand its pro-bono programs and offerings to help under-resourced students enter medicine.* We empower students through leadership roles, pro bono mentorships, and international networking. For example, Minh P., a Vietnamese immigrant and one of our Board of Directors, helps lead the way for similar students. Here is his story,

“My family and I emigrated from Vietnam ten years ago. My father works as a blue-collar worker at a small supermarket. My mother does house chores, and I am a student and employee at a Vietnamese restaurant to earn cash and support my family. Overall, I have juggled schoolwork, family, and overcoming language barriers throughout high school and college in various capacities to survive and understand materials. My dream is to improve the medical care offered at public clinics, like those in Orange County that my family and I frequently attend. My family bond drives me to work harder to support them, help students facing similar hardships, and the public as a physician one day.”

To meet our mission of empowering inspiring students like Minh and thousands of others to medicine, we rely heavily on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded supporters like you, we could not serve our community and make medicine an option for every deserving student.

We ask that you commit to supporting our organization by making a cash donation. Our goal is $5,000, which we’ll strategically use for 501(c)3 registration and other necessary startup fees. With your generosity, we will be one step closer to helping underserved students emerge as doctors and healers nationally.

On behalf of the students you are helping, we wholeheartedly thank you for your support and dedication to their educational empowerment.
