To provide tools and knowledge that inspire and lead socio-economically disadvantaged students towards a pathway to college and medicine
The K-12 Program at UC Davis School of Medicine sponsors and supports a variety of programs and opportunities year round that allow students to develop and sustain an interest in medicine and science while promoting early college preparation and readiness.
Housed within the Office of Student and Resident Diversity, the K-12 Outreach Program marks the first step in the pathway effort to produce a workforce of health workers that reflects diversity and will reduce health disparities in their various fields and the communities in which they will serve.
The program offerings happen at the School of Medicine or within the community to build mentorship, leadership and support for both medical students and the K-12 students they serve, ensuring the skills necessary for success in both academic and career goals for all participants.
