Thinking about Medical School?

Did you know that the number of African Americans applying for medical school this year increased to just under 3,500 representing a 4% over 2008?

With 1392 new enrollees, Fall 2009 ended up with the largest number of African American students in medical school since 1999.

If you are thinking of med school or know someone who is, explore a new mentoring program for medical student at Ohio University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine.
They have a new program to pair first-year students with doctors who will mentor them throughout their education.

OhioHealth System owns Riverside and Dublin Methodist hospitals, Grant Medical Center and Doctors Hospital. Students accepted into this new program will receive $500 each year to assist with expenses and, after graduation, are offered loan repayments of $10,000 a year for each year they participate in an OhioHealth residency.

OhioHealth is hoping these long-term mentoring relationships will encourage diversity and these new doctors to stay with the system after graduation.
