NHMA College Health Scholars Program

The National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) College Health Scholars Program is a unique collaborative program with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the University of the Incarnate Word (San Antonio, TX), Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (Los Angeles, CA), and the New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM).  

The Program’s purpose is to increase the diversity of the health workforce with Hispanic physicians, health professionals, and scientist/researchers by providing resources to pre-health/science college students that address academic preparation for graduate school, including math and science, professional and personal development, and financial aid resources.  The Program’s overarching goal is to increase the number of Hispanic students who are committed to increasing health equity to apply successfully to medical school, other health professions school or to graduate school in science and research careers in the United States.
