NHMA College Health Scholars Program

The National Hispanic Medical Association's College Health Scholars Program (CHSP), matches students pursuing public health and medicine careers with experienced mentors who will offer insights, advice, and unwavering support.

Program highlights:

  • 1-1 mentoring.
  • Access to key information from medical and public health admissions experts, students and financial aid officers.
  • Access to a private online student group.
  • Invitation to webinars.
  • Strategies to address future obstacles.

Only 7% of physicians in the U.S. are Hispanic/Latino, and that is not enough to meet the demands of the growing Hispanic/Latino community, making up 19% of the total U.S. population. The NHMA College Health Scholars Program aims to increase representation in the healthcare workforce by expanding the number of practicing Hispanic physicians, health professionals and scientists/researchers through mentorship.

NHMA has continued the program following a 5-year cooperative agreement between the Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health between 2017 and 2022. Click here to learn more about that partnership.
