University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ Diversity Initiatives for Healthcare Professions

Health Career University provides high school and undergraduate students from underrepresented minority groups with exposure to health careers and assistance getting into medical school.

The Summer Research Internship program is open to students in their last two years of high school or their first two years of college. This eight-week program allows students to expand their understanding of health careers by spending five days a week in laboratory settings, working with mentors and learning how to conduct science-based research.

Freshman and sophomore college students can also learn more about careers in health care through the Pre-Health Summer Scholars Program. Participants learn about cutting-edge medical treatments and technology, and they get the chance to collaborate with leaders in the healthcare industry.

The eight-week Pre-Medical Summer Scholars program focuses on getting students into medical school. Premedical students receive mentorship from faculty members and medical students, and they get professional assistance with preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and their medical school applications.
