Medical Student Outreach Program: Commission 101

UPDATED . 2 MIN READ

Sections can earn commissions based on the number of 4-year student memberships achieved throughout the recruitment year. The higher the percentage of the M1 class size recruited for a 4-year membership, the more commission dollars your section receives.

Memberships from satellite campuses roll up into main campuses. Outreach Leaders at satellite campuses can connect with the main campus Outreach Leaders to discuss commissions. In cases where commissions are sent to a partner, the Outreach Leader should connect directly with that partner.
