We provide individual mentoring services (“Mentoring,” “Mentoring Sessions,” “Sessions”) between you and one of our mentors. We are under no obligation to provide Mentoring, and we retain the right to refuse to provide Mentoring for any reason or no reason. Mentoring will be provided at rates in accordance with our “Pricing” page. We reserve the right to change our rate at any time, and you agree that all of your Mentorship Sessions purchased at a certain time will be priced at the rate effective at the time you paid, regardless of future changes in price. You have the right to express preference in your mentor choice, although we are under no obligation to provide sessions to you with any particular mentor. Mentoring Sessions purchased are eligible to be redeemed within the next 12 months after purchase. You agree that you forfeit any and all remaining Sessions without refund if not redeemed within 12 months of purchase date.
Our Mentoring Sessions consist of one-hour-long video calls or phone calls between you and one mentor. You have the right to choose the number of Sessions you would like to purchase as detailed within our “1:1 Individualized Mentorship” page. The format of video call versus phone call is to be determined by you and your mentor and will be scheduled via PocketSuite. The time and date of the Sessions will be determined by you and your mentor. You agree that all sessions will be scheduled at least 7 days in advance, although individual mentors may accept shorter notices at their discretion. Cancellation must occur at least 24 hours in advance of the beginning of the next scheduled Session, and you understand that any Sessions canceled after this time are nonrefundable and you will forfeit the amount equal to your package rate of the canceled Session. Exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis, and you understand that we may or may not grant an exception for any reason or no reason. As our mentors have many obligations outside of their mentorship roles, they may choose to cancel and reschedule sessions at any time, including within the 24 hour notice, without penalty.

You agree that refunds will only be granted if we receive notification of such a request up to 24 hours after purchase, or under documented circumstances which prevent you from applying to residency in the application cycle for which you purchased your sessions. Requests for refund should be sent to email@example.com. The arrival of an email request in our inbox is considered notification. Approval for refunds for any reason will be under the sole discretion of Med School Mentors. If a refund is granted, the amount of the refund will be determined by the per-session rate of your package multiplied by the number of sessions you have not yet redeemed in your package.
