The Foundation's Summer Medical Education Program (previously known as the Minority Medical Education Program) was designed to help minority students compete for medical school acceptance. The minority students eligible to participate in this program are from those population groups that are underrepresented in American medicine: blacks, Mexican-Americans, Native Americans, and mainland Puerto Ricans. The grantee will enroll 125 students per year in a special summer education program which will include academic enrichment, a structured laboratory/clinical experience, MCAT preparation, and counseling. The grantee functions as a consortium which consists of the Rush Medical College of Rush University, the University of Chicago, Loyola University, and Northwestern University.
