High School Programs and Partnerships
The Office of Student Inclusion and Diversity (SID) supports the core mission of the institution by working in different ways to attract high school students to careers in health.
We focus not only on short-term objectives, such as attracting qualified, underrepresented and/or disadvantaged students from diverse backgrounds, but also long-range objectives focused on student development. SID continually seeks to increase opportunities in the health professions and to provide educational opportunities and support services for underrepresented and/or disadvantaged students.”
