The "Promoting Reflection and Individual Growth through Support and Mentoring" or PRISM program at Oakland University's William Beaumont School of Medicine is a program that teaches future physicians about personal growth, wellness and career development over their 4 years. The goal of the program is to support and mentor medical school students so that they can prepare for their careers and develop resiliency to ultimately become physicians. Components of PRISM include readings and reflection, faculty mentoring groups, career development and emotional skill-building.
