Links: Underrepresented Students
The Association of American Medical Colleges is strongly committed to increasing the number of physicians and health professionals from underrepresented backgrounds in order to mirror more closely the general population. There is a significant amount of very useful information available for these students which includes summer opportunities for research and academic enhancement, application advice, and more.
Very informative website, with application, MCAT, timeline and career information specifically geared to underrepresented groups.
