About Socratic Med.
We aim to level the playing field to get into medicine.
Our vision is to create a world where every willing student has a fair chance to pursue a career in medicine.
Founded in 2020, Socratic Med is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides free remote tutoring for the medical college admissions test (MCAT® ) and research opportunities to premeds around the country. We prioritize underrepresented students who show scholarly aptitude but lack social and financial capital. We provide:
Synchronous 1:1 tutoring and asynchronous videos for MCAT® preparation.
Mentorships for publishing research literature.
We do all of this through our dedicated team of volunteers who believe in our vision and want to help improve the pre-med journey.
Our approach to pre-medical education
Understand | Learn | Practice
Understanding of the pre-med journey
We provide insight into what it takes to be a successful pre-med through curated content designed by former pre-meds and industry professionals. We focus on two high-impact areas: MCAT® scores and research experience.
Learning efficiently to succeed
Our pre-med resources are focused on what students need to know, and nothing more. Through our MCAT® lessons and research opportunities, students can gain essential skills needed to prepare for medical school.
Practice, practice, practice
We believe practice makes perfect, so we encourage repeated interactions with our learning materials so students can achieve the most impactful results.
