Prospective Students

Apply Now! Thank you for your interest in the Underserved Pathway!

The Underserved Pathway helps prepare future physicians to care for vulnerable and underserved populations. It engages students in three educational avenues: mentoring, developing a foundation of knowledge, and a variety of real-world experiences. Students can customize their pathway to meet their own educational goals and interests. Some students may focus on a specific population or community, while others may explore broader issues surrounding the underserved, such as advocacy or policy.

It’s essential to start the longitudinal mentorship and curriculum as soon as possible, so please apply early in your medical school career. See the Enrollment Policy for more information.
