This UCLA program provides scholarships, mentoring and tutoring to help students from underprivileged communities enter the medical profession.
UCLA'S Pipeline Program is actually a group of several programs that identify, encourage and aid students who might not otherwise think a career in medicine is a reachable goal. Given the wide diversity of people in the Los Angeles area, UCLA seeks to reflect that diversity in its workforce. By reaching out to high school and college students, promising students are identified and made aware of opportunities in healthcare. This often includes shadowing and internships, course counseling and help with studying for medical school entrance exams.
