University of Michigan-Flint Premedical Studies
Medical education, like any educational experience, is greatly impacted by the diversity of experiences students bring to the classroom. Many schools recognize this benefit and actively seek candidates best suited to enrich their programs. To that end, the AAMC has three programs that you should consider.
Before you apply for medical school, it is worthwhile to review specific information for minority applicants and their opportunities, which you can find at Minority Student Opportunities in United States Medical Schools.
After you apply, the Medical Minority Applicant Registry will distribute your application and MCAT score to medical schools with minority recruitment programs.
Additionally, the AAMC has launched a program, www.aspiringdocs.org Aspiring Docs, to increase interest in medical careers among minority applications.
The Early Assurance Program between UM-Flint and MSU is interested in students who are likely to return to the Flint community to practice medicine. This program seeks candidates interested in high-need medical specialty areas, as well as students who graduated from a low-income high school from a rural or urban area, or receive a PELL grant, or who are first-generation college students. If any of these describe you, please consider reviewing more about the program here.
