About 150 students from each school are expected to participate in the full-day program. There are sessions on the medical school application process, admissions tests, financial aid, interviewing skills, and an overview of health disparities. Students will interact one-on-one with mentors who will offer personal insights and share their experiences about how to build a successful career in medicine or dentistry.“We’re excited to be back on the road and traveling to Texas to reach Hispanic and African-American students. We recognize that many students may not have the resources or information to seek out medical school recruitment fairs on their own, so we come directly to campus to help spark interest in health care careers,” said Kameron Matthews, M.D., J.D., co-founder of the Tour for Diversity in Medicine and medical director of the Division Street site of Erie Family Health Center in Chicago. “By offering student workshops with doctors who come from similar backgrounds, we are helping students overcome perceived barriers to entering the medical profession and showing them what steps they’ll need to take to build a fulfilling career.”
