Diversity in Admissions

The Access and Inclusion in Medicine (AIM) Scholars Program seeks to increase the number of students from diverse backgrounds, to be successful medical graduates.

This meaningful pathway program promotes equitable educational access for highly qualified Black and Latinx students with the fortitude to complete their medical degree through partnerships with the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs). While also, directly impacting underserved communities by decreasing the health disparities in the US. This is in line with Ross medical school's credo in striving for equity in healthcare through diversity and inclusion.
