Minnesota's Future Doctors Program (Dec. 3rd, 2008)
Minnesota’s Future Doctors is a program that recruits college freshmen and sophomores for medical school in Minnesota.
The program prepares highly qualified, minority, immigrant, rural, first-in-the-family to attend college, and economically disadvantaged college freshmen and sophomores for medical school in Minnesota. Minnesota’s Future Doctors develops the skills of selected scholars over three years through paid summer internships, shadowing physicians, understanding health care in underserved communities, volunteering, and preparation for medical school. The program is supported by the University of Minnesota Medical Schools, with campuses in Duluth and Minneapolis, and the Mayo Medical School in Rochester, Minnesota.
Minnesotans, currently attending community, state or private college, who would like to know more about the program should:
