Medical Pathway Program (Nationwide)
Started in 2009, the Medical Pathway Program (MPP) is an intensive preparatory boot camp that helps disadvantaged and minority students increase their competitiveness for entry into medical school. The multi-dimensional, 20-week Saturday-based program (12-week summer program) adds needed diversity to medical schools and the medical profession. As part of the program, MIM provides training in seven broad areas: academic enrichment; MCAT/medical school preparation; leadership development; clinical exposure; civic engagement, mentoring and parent training. To address students nationwide, a virtual, online video streaming facility was added, with chat and Skype capabilities. The results are as follows:
- Over 90% of MPP students have been discouraged from pursuing their dream of becoming a physician due to their failure to meet MCAT and other thresholds.
- As a result of MPP, more than 88% of our students who applied were accepted to medical school.
- Of 274 participants, 145 medical school applicants and 127 students accepted to medical schools. Of the remaining, 139 are in a health or science field.
