Programs for College and Post-Baccalaureate Students

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 the 274 participants since 2009, 145 students applied to medical school and 127 students were accepted and matriculated into medical schools. Of the remaining, 139 are in a health or science field.
The Medical Pathway Program is a rigorous boot camp to accelerate the preparation of disadvantaged students for medical school in a supportive and nurturing environment.  

Are you planning to take the MCAT and apply to medical school in the next 6 months to 12 months?  Have youcompleted all of your pre-med requirements?  Do you need assistance with your journey to medical school?   If you answered “YES”, then you qualify to apply to the Medical Pathway Program.

The cost of the program is $1,750 with scholarship with payment plans available.  However, there may be additional money awarded/opportunities to decrease the tuition.
Program Dates:  October 2018 – March 2019
Program is delivered “live” and “on-line” on Saturdays from 9:30 am-4:30 pm EST.
