Program participants will engage with a network of professionals in medical education and healthcare
through mentorship sessions and shadowing experiences. In addition, students will be afforded
opportunities to participate in a workshop series constructed to bolster their academic and
professional skillset throughout college and medical school. Interactions with medical students and
faculty as well as academic counseling sessions will also be incorporated in students’ program
