ORTEGA-MIRANDA, Edali G. Peer mentoring in pregraduate medical education as a tool for improving the learning proccess and satisfy new generation requirements. Acta méd. Peru [online]. 2019, vol.36, n.1, pp.57-61. ISSN 1728-5917.

This paper is focused in mentoring in pregraduate medicine teaching. The idea is to show that mentoring is strengthened with information technology and that it is useful for pregraduate students, a population mainly comprising millennials and centennials. These generations represent challenges that may be turned into opportunities for incorporating information technology in their educational process. Peer mentoring, in which mentors may be senior students complying with certain requisites, may become an useful tool for achieving greater adhesion to their careers, by naturally integrating information technology to the educational process , leading to more fruitful learning and comprehension.
