The Doctors of Tomorrow program inspires and prepares high school students from underrepresented communities to successfully pursue careers in healthcare in order to increase diversity among medical professionals. Through a longitudinal program of clinical immersion, academic preparation, and leadership development coupled with continued engagement and mentorship throughout high school and beyond, we strive to develop the necessary foundation for students to succeed academically and professionally. The program creates an educational experience where all participants are actively engaged in developing and promoting cultural awareness as we strive to reduce bias in the medical field and foster our students as agents of change in their communities.
THE CAPSTONE PROJECTS
The goal of the Capstone Projects is to give students the opportunity to collaborate with peers and mentors, hone research skills, gain experience in public speaking, explore health topics more deeply, investigate how socioeconomic factors influence health and use creativity and problem-solving skills to begin thinking of solutions.
