Medical Professionals Pipeline Program

About Us

If you are pursuing a career in medicine and you are unsure of where to start, you are in the right place! The Medical Professionals Pipeline Program is a premedical outreach program that supports students interested in becoming physicians or exploring careers in medicine.


The mission of the Medical Professional Pipeline Program is to provide students a centralized community with access to resources, educational workshops, clinical research positions, internships, and mentorship opportunities that promote continuous improvement of skill set, student resilience, and interest in their pursuit of graduate-level healthcare careers.


Our goal is to support students on their journey to become successful graduate school applicants. Students will have proven academic success, developed qualities such as compassion, leadership, and teamwork and become well-informed about the dedication needed to pursue their medical career of interest.
