Do you want to be a doctor?
We are here to inspire & guide
Getting into medical school can be a long process and difficult to navigate particularly for students from underserved backgrounds and communities due to the lack of access to medical mentorship and network.
The Young Physicians Initiative provides early and interactive guidance to underserved high school and college students who have an interest in a career in medicine.
Power of Being Present
When students see us in their communities, interact with us, then they are inspired to be like us.
