UMMSM Future Medical Scholars Fellowship Program

The UMMSM Future Medical Scholars Fellowship Program builds upon the lifelong work of Astrid Mack, Ph.D. , formerly the Miller School’s associate dean for minority affairs. Dr. Mack played a pivotal role in helping hundreds of disadvantaged youths to secure productive healthcare careers. The Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement’s goal is to take Dr. Mack’s invaluable efforts to new heights.

In order to do so, the UMMSM Future Medical Scholars Fellowship Program is committed to preparing underrepresented students from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds to successfully compete for admission and graduation from allied and health professional schools, especially in medicine. Participants in our various programs are offered a variety of resources and opportunities that include but are not limited to individual mentoring, portfolio review and development, mock interview preparation, clinical shadowing, research, and community outreach.
