Three years ago Dundee University Medical School created a post of a part-time academic mentor to strengthen support for students. The experience of the first two years of this post is described. Students give their views on aspects of the mentor’s role that they found helpful and describe some of the barriers to seeking support. Finally we look forward with suggestions on how the role of mentor could be developed in future to improve student support.
