Peer Mentor Program (Big/Little)
The Big/Little Program is a peer mentorship program in which each member of the incoming class is paired with a second-year student. A first-year student’s “Big” will help ensure that the transition into dental school is a smooth one.
This program is designed to answer questions, from determining the appropriate dress code and effectively studying for classes to finding your way around Gainesville.
Each Fall semester, second-year students are assigned to a clinical care group and matched with a third-year clinical associate. This program is designed to assist rising third-year students with the transition from second year pre-clinical courses to practicing in the DMD student clinics.
