Our mission is to develop preeminent physician leaders and a diverse workforce through scholarship and innovative medical education design anchored by the principles of primary care and health systems science. We seek to enroll students of diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives who demonstrate a commitment to future practice in the primary care disciplines of internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, and general surgery.

Our holistic admissions approach enables us to broaden the lens through which we learn about our applicants and to better assess how their experiences, attributes, and metrics align with our primary care mission and unique educational program. We are also interested in learning more about the life journeys of our applicants, any challenges they may have faced along their path, and how they hope to contribute to the medical profession and our community of engaged learners.

We encourage applications from people who are from groups underrepresented in medicine, first-generation college students, those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and those who may have taken a nontraditional path toward medicine.
