Mission Statement:

The HEART MD-PhD Summer Program is a student-led, fully funded initiative that aims to create equitable opportunities for accessing physician-scientist career paths. We provide undergraduate students with longitudinal mentorship, research experience, clinical exposure, professional development, and peer community. With our rich programming, we hope to foster the qualities of research competence, empathy, curiosity, and leadership necessary for the MD-PhD application process and physician-scientist training path. Through this work, we aim to increase diversity in science and medicine to improve health and wellbeing for all.
