Peer Learning Partners (PLP)

Support NYMC

Peer-to-peer support is provided for a variety of courses in NYMC's School of Medicine, NYMC's Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, NYMC's School of Health Sciences and Practice, and Touro College of Dental Medicine at NYMC.

Each student is allowed two hours per week. Peer learning partners are at least one year ahead and are paid an hourly rate by NYMC Academic Support for their services. 

See below for more information about the peer learning partners provided.

First-time users need to register for an account. Only the white boxes are available. Sessions cannot be held and booked on the same day to allow PLPs time to prepare. Online consultations are available directly through this system. For further guidance, please review the WCOnline FAQs document and the WCOnline Video Guide.
