FAQ for Students

Medsembly is always free to get started and connect with mentors and peers. We offer a wide selection of free resources for transitioning into the healthcare field. 

Though we provide mentors, advice, and guidance to students, we are not an educational institution, accrediting body, or affiliated with any state organizations. We encourage students to stay informed with their schools, accreditation committees, and state legislation for the most up to date information.

You will download the app, create an account, and answer a few questions to facilitate a connection with the right mentor(s) for you. You will have a personalized page of recommended mentors and message them to start connecting.

You will have the ability to either purchase our amazing subscription plans or individual services. Paid services include resume review, application review, essay/personal statement revisions, mock interview, and while continuing to receive access to free resources for networking and building relationships with future colleagues.

We work to ensure every mentor responds in a timely manner, if you do not hear back after submitting a task request and messaging the mentor or if the mentor does not accept your task, we recommend connecting with another mentor. You will not be charged if a mentor does not complete the task.

Mentors have two weeks to complete all tasks

To ensure you receive your task on time, communicate regularly with your mentor. If they are not responsive or past the deadline, you can start a dispute by clicking “Help” found under the “More” tab. We review all disputes and will work to have the mentor get the assignment to you or match you with another mentor to help, free of charge.

You can cancel a task anytime before a mentor/coach accepts the task. Once a mentor commits to completing a task, it can no longer be canceled, but you may dispute a task at any time under the task page or by contacting us under the help menu.

FAQ for Professionals

Medsembly gives you the opportunity to push the sector in the right direction by preparing the next generation of healthcare professionals. As a thank you—you receive commission on completing paid tasks along with a vast offering of perks, quarterly gift cards, and helpful tools to assist you as a working professional.

Mentors are individuals that can offer valuable advice and build relationships with students with similar career goals. Mentors must have already accomplished what the student is setting out to achieve, i.e. get accepted into PA school. Because of this, pre-health students are only able to be mentored, while once accepted into a program, a student can then mentor students seeking admission into a healthcare program.

You’ll be able to engage in one-on-one conversations with students and other professionals and post to our discussion boards. If desired, you have the option of helping students prepare for entrance into school by reviewing their applications, essays, and more!

There is no time commitment to be a mentor, you have the flexibility to help with as much or as little as you can. This goes from full on mentorship, or simply answering questions. You can also mentor as many students as you like with the option to not accept students during busier times in your life.

As a mentor/coach on Medsembly, we ask to help students any way that you are able to, at any capacity. This goes from answering simple questions, offering in-person shadowing or being a clinical preceptor, to full on mentorship, to completing paid tasks.
