Getting into medical school can be a long and arduous process and difficult to navigate particularly for students from underserved backgrounds. The Young Physicians Initiative provides early and interactive guidance to underserved high school and undergraduate students with academic potential, a commitment to completing college and who have an interest in a career in medicine. Our program leaders are professors, clinical physicians, medical residents and students.
We inspire high school and undergraduate students into a career in medicine by:
- Being present in their community and provide role models.
- Introduce diagnostic curiosity of medicine by solving medical cases.
- Educate about the pathways toward becoming a doctor.
- Create a growing community and network of support and mentorship
