A top priority for the Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine has long been the recruitment and retention of students from diverse groups who are underrepresented in American health care professions.

The Department of Health Career Opportunity Programs actively recruits underrepesented medical and dental students and supports those who are enrolled throughout the academic year.

The continuous pipeline of programs has been successful in helping participants realize their dreams of becoming health care providers. The programs are therefore instrumental in aiding the development of the future health career workforce in the U.S.
