Minority Applicants

There is a critical need for underrepresented minority doctors in the United States. Many medical schools are looking specifically for individuals who are committed to serving communities with high minority populations. Accordingly, special consideration may be given to such students when their applications are reviewed. Less emphasis may be placed on GPA and MCAT scores and more on life experiences, the personal essay, and the interview. If you belong to an underrepresented minority, have a respectable academic record, and are committed to serving minority-dominated communities, then your chances of being accepted to medical school are very good.

There are also several summer programs intended to provide educational and training opportunities for students from minority groups that are underrepresented in U.S. medicine, including Blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians. One such program is the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program, SMDEP. There are currently twelve SMDEP sites, each offering a unique program; some designed for students who have finished their freshman or sophomore years, some for upperclassmen, and some for those who have graduated from college. You can only attend one of these programs, so be sure to closely evaluate what they have to offer and what you need to strengthen your credentials. For example, only some of the sites offer help in preparing for the MCAT.

Summer programs are also offered by individual medical schools, including the local institutions UMass, UConn, Tufts, and Harvard. New programs are being developed all the time, so be sure to check out websites such as Syracuse University, and check with the Health Careers Advising Office early and often.
