Statement Of Purpose

Our Focus

Black and Hispanic physicians make up less than 10% of the physician workforce despite the fact that the population in the United States is becoming increasingly diverse. To adequately address the healthcare needs of this diverse population, we need to significantly increase the number of Black and other under-represented minorities (URM) in the physician workforce. Studies show that when a patient and their doctor are of the same race, the patient will experience a more satisfying doctor-patient relationship.

Studies also show that African-American and Hispanic physicians are more likely to return to practice in an underserved community as compared to their white counterparts.

To increase the number of Black and other URM doctors, we must develop strategies and initiate programs that will inspire, recruit, and educate ethnically diverse physicians.

Over the past several decades, the number of Black and other underrepresented minority (URM) students applying to medical school has not increased to any significant degree. In fact, the number of Black males applying to medical school has actually decreased.

The reasons for the lack of minority physicians are multifactorial:

The solutions to these challenges are multifactorial as well. Therefore, a multifaceted approach is needed to address them. PRE-MED SOLUTIONS is a comprehensive mentoring program that provides education and strategies to Black and other URM applicants that seek advice, support, and financial resources to help them navigate the medical school and residency application process.

How much it cost just to apply to medical school

IF YOU WANT TO HELP INCREASE THE NUMBER OF BLACK AND OTHER (URM) PHYSICIANS, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING.

It is very expensive to apply to medical school. The average student will spend at least $6725.00 just to get through the application process. Regardless of how qualified they are, the majority of (URM) students do not have the money to pay for review courses, application fees, and travel expenses that are part of the application process. Your donation can help remove some of the financial barriers that our students experience and that can go a long way towards making more minority doctors.

Mission

Goal

To diversify the physician workforce by developing a pipeline of academically prepared minority students that will become well trained, culturally competent physicians.
