Project PREMED (Providing Real World Experiences for future Marshall Educated Doctors) is sponsored by Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine Office of Diversity Programs and Office of Student Affairs in collaboration with Marshall University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs. Project PREMED is an immersion program designed to expose selected undergraduates to the life of a medical student and life in medical school. The program seeks to improve ethnic minority students visibility and accessibility to Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. The initial targeted institutions of higher learning included Marshall University, Alcorn State University, Morgan State University and schools associated with the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation.
The next Project PREMED program session will be held November 7-10, 2012. Students who are selected to participate will (1) visit to the SOM, meet administrators and guests from the Office of Multicultural Affairs, participate in sessions with medical school administrators, attend a medical school class, and engage in other related medical school activities and (2) be assigned a medical student mentor who will be responsible for maintaining contact with the students after their visit to provide guidance regarding the process of preparing for and applying to medical school.
