Minority Students in Health Careers Motivation Program

Over the past 27 years the Minority Students in Health Careers Motivation Program (MSHCMP) has been involved in assisting students to move toward their goal of becoming a physician. MSHCMP is a seven-week residential program providing accepted students with the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of the requirements of a medical education. Participants explore the coursework offered within the first year of medical school and discover the pace at which one must work in order to handle medical studies successfully. The program is directed towards students who have completed at least two or three years of undergraduate education, with a focus on premedical studies. All of the courses are taught by Miller School of Medicine and Coral Gables faculty. This “mini” medical school experience will allow the potential medical student to evaluate the rigors of medical studies and determine how best to successfully approach them in the future. Additionally, students will benefit from information on how to apply to medical school.

The Minority Students in Health Careers Motivation Program will run from June 1, 2014 and conclude on July 18, 2014. Applications are due March 21, 2014. Please feel free to contact the Office of Academic Enhancementdirectly with any questions at oae@miami.edu or 305-284-3187.
