Peers Supporting Peers (PSP) is an organization of University of Minnesota medical students who provide private, non-judgmental support to fellow students looking for assistance in coping with school and non-school related questions and stressors.


Peers Supporting Peers (PSP) is a student-run organization that aims to provide a supportive, non-judgemental environment to fellow medical students who want assistance coping with stressors and/or are looking to build community. We hope to forge bonds between students going through similar life experiences and create opportunities for discussion and reflection on common issues that arise in medical school.

This mission will be carried out through the events below. These are subject to change throughout the year.

  • Coffee with PSP, a program that pairs students looking to meet others with shared experiences or those looking for support from a student further along in medical school, connecting them thru conversation and coffee.
  • Reflecting Pool Events, which facilitate an intentional space for students to discuss school, life, and wellbeing – exploring their shared and unique experiences in medical school.
  • Tea Time, a weekly, peer-facilitated conversation to process the highs and lows of life as a medical student. Hot water and tea provided.
  • Our members are also available for one-on-one meetings. If you need someone to listen, are concerned about yourself or a classmate, have academic concerns, or need a referral to an appropriate health professional, PSP is there for you.


PSP is continuously evolving and adapting. If you have a question or are in need of resources, feel free to email PSP at and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
